Are you called to Certified Lay Ministry? Do you feel a call on your life to serve outside of the walls of the church in cooperation with ordained clergy? Are you called to lead discipleship programs, accountability groups, or even to help serve small membership churches? If you are currently a Certified Lay Servant, you are eligible to enroll in CLM 101: Call and Covenant for Ministry and begin a four module learning process that leads to Certified Lay Ministry! We do recommend you check with your pastor, district superintendent, or conference office to make sure these courses are approved by your conference for your certification as a lay minister. Module One: Call and Covenant for Ministry examines United Methodist theology and ordering of ministry, along with the role of the Certified Lay Minister and other leadership concerns. Alongside fellow students, you will discover how CLMs “fit” into the big picture of ministry in the United Methodist Church and through conversation with your fellow students, you’ll begin the process of discerning your own call. This course has been updated to reflect changes in the 2016 Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church.
