Lay Servant Ministry courses are open to ALL, whether or not an enrollee applies to serve as a Lay Servant.
Lay Servant Ministries help Christians to claim their spiritual gifts, talents and skills by offering empowering training. This training encourages them to find places to use their God given gifts in ministry while providing them a network of support.
The 2016 General Conference of The United Methodist Church established three categories within the Lay Servant Ministries program (effective January 1, 2017).
