Mission & Ministry - President's Corner

President's Corner

Daughters, welcome to the Diocese of Florida Daughters of the King website.

 

As of May 1, 2015, we have 34 DOK chapters in the Diocese with an additional one to be instituted on May 21, 2015, at St. Francis in the Fields in Ponte Vedra. Currently we have about 600 Daughters in our Diocese which includes 62 churches and one cathedral in 25 counties in the Northern part of Florida.  This provides us a great opportunity for evangelism in those churches without DOK chapters.

As Daughters it is our responsibility to follow the Rules of Prayer, Study, Service, and Evangelism as set forth in our National Handbook.  I encourage you to spend time in prayer daily, attend your chapter meetings, perform service project in your church and community, and assist your clergy as needed.  There are also opportunities to attend quiet days, Spring and Fall Assemblies, and the Province IV Assembly at Kanuga (in NC) each October.

Our prayers should always include the needs of our fellow Daughters; our church, our community, and the world, as we work to spread God's Kingdom throughout the world.

Our theme for the next three years is from Matthew 7: 7.  "Ask and it will be given, Seek and ye shall find, Knock and the door will be opened."  It can also be found in Luke 11: 9-10.  My inspiration for our theme came from several reading in the book JESUS CALLING by Sarah Young.  I highly recommend this book of devotionals for each day of the year. 

Our service project for the next three years will be Mission Churches in the Diocese: Grace in Tallahassee, St. Mary's in Jacksonville and Church Without Walls in Jacksonville. 

And remember: to wear your cross proudly as a symbol of the vows you took when you became a Daughter of the King.

 

Gloria - DOK President

Knock and the Door will Open
