Lay Servant Ministries

Lay Servant Ministries is one of the most significant lay leadership development programs available within the United Methodist connection. Through this system of equipping and empowering, lay servants have the opportunity to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ who then go and make other disciples. Classes are offered throughout the year focusing on various topics and you can find the latest offerings by selecting the events listed on this page. If you’re new to Lay Servant Ministries training, you’ll need to start your journey with the Basic Course and then move on to more advanced courses.
