Have you attended a ConneXion Retreat and feel ready 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?
Lay speaker certification is a process that prepares you to move forward. This segment consists of practical and inspiring classes offered virtually on three consecutive Saturdays (classes are from 9:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. with breaks and time for lunch):
Being a certified Lay Speaker enables you to preach and provide pulpit supply beyond your local church. In addition to these three workshops, the certification process requires participation in a ConneXion retreat, a call statement, a video taped sermon and an interview with members of the Lay Ministry team. These steps will be explained during the sessions.
It is recommended that the participant attend the ConneXion program before attending the Certified Lay Speaker Training. Please contact Marion prior to registration if you have not previously completed this program.
Registration by November 4, program is limited to 10 participants and you must be at all three sessions.
Cost is $75. Do not let the expense keep you from participating, alternate arrangements can be made.
