The Basic Lay Speaking Course is designed to help you explore your calling as a lay person and to help equip you for leadership in the local church. This two-day course not only prepares you to follow your call, whatever that may be, but also helps you grow deeper in your own faith and spiritual journey as you discern God's plans for your and work with others who are also considering their calls.
This course is required for anyone seeking to be certified as a local church or certified lay speaker (or lay servant, in the 2012 Book of Discipline). It can also serve as a refresher course for local church lay speakers who need a course within the past three years to be renewed in 2013.
