Advanced Course – From the Pew to the Pulpit – Instructor: Rev. Bill Lloyd
This is a course designed for individuals who are called upon to preach occasionally but are not formally trained as pastors, and for individuals who are called to pulpit supply. This is a new preach class with a new book, the first time we’ve offered it in our district. Even those who have had a preach class in the past are encouraged to take this one as well. This is one of the six classes required for the Lay Speaking Track.
Advanced Course – Leading Bible Study – Instructor: Kin McKinnon
This class is great for Sunday School Teachers and Bible Study Leaders. This class is open to anyone wishing to take it. If you are not part of the Lay Servant Ministries program, however, and wish to become a Certified Lay Servant, then you must take BASIC first.
Advanced Course – Train the Trainer– Instructor: Dr. Kay Haugen
This purpose of this class is to certify instructors to teach the other Lay Servant Classes. Please sign up if you think you will be interested in teaching a class anytime in the foreseeable future.
