Lay Servant Ministers please note:  The 2004 General Conference determined that for a Local Church to be current, their Certified Lay Servants must maintain an active status by completing a course or facilitating a course every 3 years.

We encourage all who wish to begin their journey in Lay Servant Ministry and all who wish to receive recertification and/or qualify for Certified Lay Minister training to consider signing up for this Academy.
