Course descriptions:
Lay Servant BASIC Course (Lay leaders are urged to take this class) ¶ 251f of the 2016 Book of Discipline states “The lay leader is urged to become a certified lay servant.”

This class requires a letter of recommendation from the pastor. This course is the foundation for all the other texts in the Learning and Leading series for lay servants. In this course, students are encouraged to recognize and employ personal spiritual gifts for the church in order to use them as God fully intended. Participants are invited to consider the importance of exercising servant leadership, developing future leaders, remaining rooted in consistent spiritual practices and being part of a group that holds members accountable in discipleship. It offers guidelines for best practices as a church leader and outlines a number of ministries in which you as lay servants may assume roles.

 

Living our United Methodist Beliefs

Faithful Christian discipleship requires a foundation in the core belief and practices of the Christian tradition.  Wesley's sermons and writing provide this stepping off point.  Living Our Beliefs offers a basic explanation of the beliefs and practices of The United Methodist Church as defined in Part II of The Book of Discipline. This class is required for Lay Servants who wish to become Certified Lay Speakers.

 

Called to Preach

This course is designed for those who have not completed formal preaching training, for pastors seeking a basic refresher course, and for others who are called upon to preach in a pastor’s absence. This class is required for Lay Servants who wish to become Certified Lay Speakers.
