BASIC LAY SERVANT COURSE - Sponsored by the Ohio River Valley District

This course invites participants 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 discipleship. It offers guidelines for optimal communication in leadership and presents numerous types of ministries in which lay servants may assume roles. Throughout the study, thoughtful questions provide excellent opportunities for individual consideration and group discussion.

LEADING (PUBLIC) PRAYER - Advanced Core Course

Prayer is something we learn; it is something that can be taught. For many, however, the only teaching about prayer they ever receive is modeled in Sunday worship. This course may challenge some of your assumptions, test some of your preconceived ideas, stretch your thinking, and enrich your prayer life. It will, at the very least, present you with an opportunity to grow in the discipline of leading public prayer.
3 Zoom Sessions: Your Zoom link will be sent to you by email prior to the start of the first class.
Thursday, October 8, 7-9 pm
Saturday, October 10, 10 am - 2 pm
