On March 15, the Rev. Deacon Fatima Yakubu-Madus will join Bishop Jennifer’s staff as part-time missioner for community engagement in collaboration with Christ Church Cathedral, where she will serve as deacon. 

“I look forward to working with Deacon Fatima and with many of you to continue exploring where God is calling us to serve and advocate in our communities, across Indiana, and in the wider world,” wrote Bishop Jennifer in a pastoral letter published February 28.

In addition to her non-stipendiary work as a deacon, in which she will facilitate local and global outreach and advocacy training for members of the diocese, Yakubu-Madus will hold a compensated position in which she will support diocesan and cathedral projects and programs that identify community needs and ministry opportunities and develop resources, partnerships and leaders for community engagement.
