Lay Servant Ministries

North Central District Lay Servant Ministries
 

In 2012 the General Conference of The United Methodist Church approved legislation to change the name of Lay Speaking Ministries to Lay Servant Ministries. For several quadrennia various name changes were proposed – none of which adequately described the role of this leadership development program.

The term servant was chosen because it best describes what Jesus told his disciples in John 13 after he himself had performed the duties of the lowliest servant. We should be honored to serve as our Lord and Savior did. We are called to live out our discipleship as servants in leadership! Local Church and Certified Lay Servants There is no change in the process of becoming a local church or certified lay servant from the former lay speaker process. There was, however, a role of lay speaker added to the program, which includes specific preparation and accountability processes. For More information:  - 2015 Lay Servant Ministries Brochure
