The ministry of the laity is critical in the life of the church. To assist in preparing our lay people for new steps into leadership we welcome Greg Biehl. Greg has been a member of St. Matthew UMC for 41 years and has been a Lay Servant for the last two years. Greg is a dedicated servant in his church. His commitment to enhancing the ministry of the laity is evident in his work in the local church and in the East District.
We know that Greg has some big shoes to fill as we say thank you to John and Susan Bowers for their years of wonderful service as the Directors for our Lay Servant Ministries. The example the John and Susan set is an inspiration for Greg in his new position.
Lay Servant Ministries provide you with the skills, knowledge and support you need as you take new steps of leadership in your local church. Whether you want to learn to lead devotional times with ease, or desire to be a small group study leader, or simply want to grow in faith – open to where God may be leading you, Lay Servant Ministries is an excellent resource for you. Take advantage of the opportunities available to you. We know that God will do great things through you and your willingness to serve others.
