Starkville District 2021 Lay Servant Training Zoom Courses
April 06 2021
We are excited to share that Minister Alberta Hendrix, our District Lay Servant Ministry Director, has put together an adaptive Basic Lay Servant Leadership Training class, Advanced Lay Servant classes and also for the first time a class for the District Certified Lay Ministers. These Training opportunities will begin via Zoom on April 10th and will run through Saturday through May 8th. These dates have been selected by each Instructor.
Due to the continued concern over in-personal gathering, these training opportunities have been adapted to replace the in-person annual Training Opportunity that was to take place April 10th at First UMC, Starkville. We thank the instructors for their willingness to give of their time, gifts and graces to make this possible for our District. Here is a list of the upcoming courses, dates, times and instructors which courses are available to anyone interested.
The cost is $25 per person which includes a class book or workbook.
There will be no pre or post work assignments.
A total of 8 hours of class time is required for Certification. Your certificate will be mailed following the notification of your instructor.
