A deanery is a geographic grouping of congregations who collaborate on governance issues and ministry projects for their region. Each deanery elects a representative to the Executive Council of the diocese, which is the governing body that does the work of the Diocesan Convention during the rest of the year when the Convention is not in session.
There are five deaneries in the Diocese of Fort Worth. Click on the name of a deanery below for details about meeting dates, officers, and news:
