“John and Charles Wesley and the early Methodists understood the importance of Christian community, lay leadership in ministry, small groups and mutual accountability, and supporting the work of Christian formation. Faith was increased, hope confirmed, and persons perfected in love by the system of small groups led by laypeople in the Methodist societies. Men and women learned the basic practices of Christian life and, with regular accountability and support, they grew in love.” (Revised Leader’s Guide, Becoming Accountable Disciples) Learn more about Wesley’s theology, his understanding of scripture and the “means of grace,” as well as his “operating principles” and “household rules,” as we explore what it means to be accountable members of the household of God! Students are required to have Accountable Discipleship: Living in God’s Household, by Steven W. Manskar, for this course. This two-week Advanced course for Lay Servants and Lay Speakers will use journaling, discussion, and an optional Zoom meeting to gain fresh insights into both being part of and preparing to lead accountable small groups. This course has been approved by Discipleship Ministries (formerly the General Board of Discipleship) as an advanced course in Lay Servant Ministries and qualifies for 10 contact hours for Lay Speakers (equivalent 1 CEU).
