Certified Lay Minister (CLM) Training: Cycle C

The Certified Lay Minister course: Leadership in the Wesleyan Way is currently available for registration.

The course is taught by the Rev. David Nieda, Vancouver District Superintendent, and Rev. Peg Lofsvold, Cascadia District Superintendent.

Wesleyan leadership comes from a belief in the deep sense of God’s grace permeating the world.  It is from this sense of grace that we are called to share our faith. The two touchstones to our witness to God’s love are evangelism and mission-field engagement, both personally and corporately.  In this course students will discover how their personal faith stories and engagement of the mission field will positively impact their ministries.  This course is the 4th in the cycle of intermediate CLM curriculum.

There are two options for dates / locations. Our hope is that you’ll register for one of these trainings:

Church for All People: Engaging the Mission Field

Sponsored by the Bishop Jack and Marjorie Tuell Center for Leadership Excellence and the General Board of Global Ministries, this conference will take place on Friday, April 24, 2015, and Saturday, April 25, 2015, at Seattle’s First United Methodist Church.

Lay and clergy teams who desire to boost existing ministries and explore how to embrace others who are different from themselves will want to participate in this exciting event. Through this conference, you’ll begin to appreciate how diverse gifts will transform your Body of Christ.

The United Methodist Church for All People, located in Columbus, Ohio, has developed into a vibrant faith community composed of people from diverse social, economic, and racial backgrounds. Their ministries have grown and leaders have emerged from across this entire spectrum. Join the founders of the Church for All People as they serve as our keynote speakers for this conference.

Our Keynote Speakers will include:

  • Reverend John Edgar, United Methodist Church for All People
  • Donita Harris – Lay Pastor and Director of Operations
  • George Howard – President of the Board for C4AP,  Associate General Secretary for  General Board of Global Ministries

The conference plenaries are designed to meet you where you are. Whether your congregation is taking its first step in reaching out to a community that is different from those in the pews on Sunday morning, or you are engaged in multicultural, multiclass ministry and desire expansion and depth, this event will offer a wide variety.

Congregations should begin their planning to attend this unique, space-limited conference, as this training will be marketed to the Western Jurisdiction for participation.
