Lay Servant Ministries is one of the most significant lay leadership development programs available within the United Methodist connection. Through this equipping and empowering system, lay servants have the opportunity to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ who then go and make other disciples.
 
The Introduction to Lay Ministry: The BASIC Course is the foundational course for Lay Servant Ministries.  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.  There are no prerequisites to the BASIC course, but the class is a requirement for anyone seeking to become a Certified Lay Servant or a Certified Lay Speaker.
 
When: Friday, November 4, 2022 (6 p.m.- 8 p.m.) and Saturday, November 5, 2022 (8 a.m. – 12 p.m.)
Where: Virtual (Zoom)
Registration: Required by Oct. 17 (https://mississippi-reg.brtapp.com/basiccourse22)
Cost: $10 + the cost of the assigned book
Class Instructors: Cheryl Denley and Angela Griffin
 
Requirements: Participants are expected to attend both the Friday night and Saturday morning portions of the course.  There are pre-course and post-course assignments that are required to receive credit for the course.  This virtual event will be held via Zoom; participants should have access to the internet and to Zoom to participate.
