Are you a lay person with a love of God and neighbor currently volunteering in your local congregation? Do you hunger to serve God with a greater sense of direction?
If so, consider joining others from across the Conference in the upcoming Certified Lay Minister (CLM) Academy! The one-year CLM Academy starts on March 14, 2020 and concludes in March 2021 with recognition occurring at the 2021 Annual Conference. In order to apply, you must complete the basic course for Lay Servant Ministries and the Advanced Spiritual Gifts course, and must also have the recommendation of your pastor. The Advanced courses on Leading Prayer, Leading Worship and the Lay Ministry course on Preaching are required before the final Academy class in March of 2021. Cost is $400 plus any required texts. All Academy classes will meet at the West Ohio Conference Center, except for the first class, which will be held online.
