The Lay Servant Ministries Fall Academy will be held at Blue Grass on Saturday, September 15th from 8:30am-2:30pm.
This training is open to anyone who is interested as well as anyone who would like to pursue Lay Servant Ministry status with our denomination.
There are three workshops being held that day. You choose one workshop topic from the following to attend:
Course 1: The Basic Course which is foundational to become a Certified Lay Speaker and a Certified Lay Servant. Participants are encouraged to discover and employ personal spiritual gifts as God intended and to consider the importance of exercising servant leadership, developing future leaders, remaining rooted in consistent spiritual practices, and being part of a group that holds members accountable in their discipleship.
Course 2: Discover Your Spiritual Gifts. This course helps participants understand spiritual gifts and how the church can use them to fulfill its mission and ministry. Participants will also learn what it means to be a spiritual leader and will be equipped to lead others in exploring and using their spiritual gifts.
Course 3: Called to Preach. This course is designed for those who have not completed formal preaching training, for pastors seeking a basic refresher course, and for others who are called upon to preach in a pastor’s absence. This course will also meet on Sept. 29 from 8:30-11:00am.
