The School for Lay Ministry (SLM) is more than a 12-course program to inspire, equip and encourage lay people; it is an education in worship planning, congregational care, doctrine and history, that will benefit not only you and your local church but will impact your life.
You can enroll in the complete SLM program or take only classes that interest you.
SLM is the basis to become Certified Lay Speaker, Certified Lay Servant, and Certified Lay Minister, and by completing SLM classes, you can maintain that designation.
SLM provides a way for lay people to express their gifts and talents in the local church and to serve beyond your local church if desired.
The School for Lay Ministry is for clergy too! Enrolling is a perfect way to inspire, equip, and encourage clergy and laity to work together and serve their local church and community.
Please complete this application to enroll in either the three-year 12-course program or take individual classes, please complete this application.
All classes are online and on a Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Tuition for each class is $100.00.
