Training Opportunities for Laity
All laity are invited and encouraged to participate in Lay Servant Ministries courses. We recommend the Basic Course in Lay Servant Ministry as a great place to start. This course is also the first step for those who wish to pursue certification as a lay servant, lay speaker, or lay minister.
Lay Servant Ministries Courses follow a standard design of 10 hours, including instructional time and assignments. Classes are online through the Zoom platform. There is a small registration fee of $20 per class, and you will need to purchase your book beforehand. For a listing of the current year's course offerings, see schedule below.
