ADVANCED LAY SERVANT MINISTRY TRAINING

What is Lay Servant Ministries?

Lay servant ministries is about equipping and empowering people as disciples and leaders, and, it is an excellent way to build up "HOPE" in any congregation—Hospitality, Offer Christ, Purpose, and Engagement—and for the developing new relationships outside of the church walls. Advanced classes may be taken by anyone who wishes, however, to get certified as an Advanced Lay Servant, you must take the basic classes first.
