Advanced lay speaking courses online
The Richard and Julia Wilke Institute for Discipleship, in cooperation with the General Board of Discipleship is offering several online advanced lay speaking courses. These courses have been approved by the General Board of Discipleship as fulfillment of advanced lay speaking training.
Topics for the early part of 2012 include: Multimedia Technology in Worship for the Church Volunteer 101, Growing Spiritually through Daily Discipline; Leading Worship 101 for Lay People; Bible Storytelling I, and Bible Storytelling II.
Lay Speakers are urged to check with their District Director of Lay Speaking prior to registering and taking one of these courses in order to verify that they qualify for counting this type of course as their Continuing Education credit this year. Online Courses in your District may be counted as Continuing Ed on the same basis as Alternative Courses are able to be counted.
