Concordia Deaconess Conference
Concordia Deaconess Conference (CDC) is a free association of consecrated deaconesses who hold membership in an LCMS congregation and subscribe to and live by the confessional position of the LCMS. Membership is contingent upon holding membership in no other deaconess conference or association. The CDC was founded in 1980, the year the first synodical deaconess program opened at Concordia University Chicago.
