Laity have long been an integral part of Methodist ministry. Lay leaders, lay speakers, and lay missioners have served the church almost since its inception.

Certified Lay Ministers (CLMs) typically provide ministry in part-time or volunteer roles in a variety of formats including conducting public worship, caring for the congregation, assisting in program leadership, developing new and existing faith communities, preaching the Word, leading small groups, and establishing community outreach ministries. Congregational Development and Connectional Ministries have partnered to offer a training opportunity to help laity deepen their leadership skills and gain practical, hands-on experience.

The coursework includes holistic ministry training covering the following topics:

  • Worship
  • Discipleship
  • Preaching and Teaching
  • Congregational Care
  • Communication
  • Organizational and Personal Leadership
  • United Methodist Connection

In this 6 session course (see dates below) held at The Pointe, Leesburg, GA, participants will develop a team of leaders and supporters within their current congregation who will encourage them throughout the course and beyond. Through the classes, they’ll build relationships with other South Georgia lay leaders and learn, practice, implement, share, and be inspired to take what they’ve learned and put it into action.

Location: The Chapel, 114 Harris Farm Rd., Brunswick, GA 31520
