The Diakonia program is one in which Wayland students look for ways to partner with local agencies to help meet the needs of those in the Plainview community who are at risk. In particular, according to Dr. Richard Shaw, director of the Wayland Mission Center, the students have targeted organizations which help the hungry. Shaw said the word “Diakonia” means service or ministry and the idea for the program came as the result of a Bible study he began with students.
