Lay Ministry School
The Lay Ministry Schools held in each district provide opprtunities to be trained in ministry for the local church and for the communities in which we live. The Lay Ministry program is not just for current Lay Speakers and those feeling a call to Lay Speaking, it is an opportunity for all laity explore, learn and be trained.
There are no limitations to attending a school. District boarders, educational levels and where we are at in our faith walks do not seperate us. We all come together to answer Christ's call in our lives.
Please look over what the schools are doing, choose a class and contact the director to learn more. Come be a part of awakening the church to its place in ministry and mission to all the world.
