Greetings Lay Speakers, Pastors and Churches;


It’s time again for learning and exploring in the Mark Twain District!! We are doing things a little different this spring as we are attempting to hold the whole session in one day.


We are offering a basic course that does not require a sermon, and is not just for Lay Speakers anymore. If you or someone in your Church wants to come closer to Jesus through this connectional activity, then invite them to attend. It is, of course, the first in a series to develop Lay Speakers, but the class looks at the basics of our church. It is for people who want more from their time in worship and study.


Please register early to allow for time to study the materials you will receive for your class.


The registration will be cut off on February 6th and no one else can sign up after that. This allows time for students to receive the materials, read them, and write a 2 page report and have it to the instructor by March the 6th. This report is to satisfy the requirements of an official Lay Speaking course.


One of the advanced courses will be “Lay Speakers Preach” led by Eric Anderson. He will require a 5 minute sermon be sent to him for review, in lieu of the book review. Pick the sermon topic from around the date of the class. Use the lectionary.


Another advanced class will be directed by Rev Susan Cox based on Bishop Schnase’s book “5 Practices of Fruitful Congregations”.


The final advanced class will be guided by Rev Bill Koch. He will explore the subject of evangelism in today’s church.


Remember the deadlines, new format, and the reason. Jesus


Lay Speaking Ministries Training can help us grow spiritually, deepen our faith and help our churches grow and be revitalized to show Jesus to our communities.


Please make every effort to attend this training and invite a friend.  I look forward to seeing each of you soon.  Thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord through your ministries.
