Lay Servant Ministry Course Schedule

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.
