Do you feel a nudge or a call or a yearning to take the next step in your faith and ministry? Is the Holy Spirit inspiring you to ministries related to preaching and worship leadership? Are you called to provide pulpit supply beyond your local church? If so, lay speaker certification is for you. This level of certification consists of practical and inspiring classes that will be offered in a retreat setting. The sessions include topics such as:

  • Preaching
  • Living our United Methodist beliefs (UM heritage)
  • Life together in the United Methodist connection (UM polity) 
  • Leading prayer
  • Leading worship

Lay speaker certification is part of the progression of Lay Servant Ministries. Attending a ConneXion retreat prior to this is recommended.

Cost should never prevent you from serving. If you are interested in the lay servant program but are concerned about the expense, please contact Janet Beard (612-230-6156).

This retreat begins with dinner on Friday and will conclude by late Sunday afternoon. A preparation packet will be sent in advance.
Cost: $150 (double occupancy, in-room bath), $195 for single occupancy, $75 for commuters
Deadline: November 06, 2017 12:00 AM
