The Basic Course is foundational for all courses in 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

The Advanced Course will feature the Social Principles of The United Methodist Church.  The Social Principles are the product of over one hundred years of legislative decisions made by lay and clergy members of The United Methodist Church and its predecessor denominations. The Social Principles are prayerful and thoughtful efforts on the part of many General Conferences to speak to complex and controversial issues in the global community.  Studying The Social Principles provides opportunities to examine your own theology and ethics and to practice discipleship

While there is no registration fee for either course, we do require registration in order to be faithful stewards in providing food, beverages, and appropriate space.  Register by clicking the "Register" button to the left.
