Lay Servant Ministries…”a very good place to start”

Over the past several years, Lay Servant Ministries (LSM) has undergone changes in its form, but not in its mission to equip laity for their role in ministry as disciples of Jesus Christ.  North District Lay Servant Ministries Team takes its responsibility for bringing that opportunity to laity very seriously.  How do we do that?

2018 Lay Servant Schedule

Lay Servants are to serve the local church or charge in any way in which their witness or leadership and service inspires the laity to deeper commitment to Christ and more effective discipleship. Classes are offered monthly in the East and West District of the Desert Southwest Conference.
