Product Description

"I want to grow as a follower of Jesus. I want to understand how to use my gifts in ministry."

Over 50,000 people engage in Lay Servant Ministries as a way to answer these spiritual nudges.

The Basic Course encourages people to recognize and use their spiritual gifts for work in the Church, helping each congregation to become an outpost for mission and transformation. Individual sessions guide participants through thoughtful reflection on the areas of leading, caring, communicating, and spreading the love of Christ in the world.

Lay Servant Ministries offer people a variety of opportunities to serve God and neighbor. In this case, the name does not say it all! Lay Servant Ministries include teaching, leading, guiding, reaching out to others, and other ways to demonstrate and proclaim the love of God in Jesus Christ. This course can be used in local churches and other venues as a leadership primer.

This resource has been revised to include changes made to the former Lay Speaking Ministries program - now Lay Servant Ministries - at the 2012 General Conference.

Publisher's Description

God calls every Christian to a life of servanthood as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

 

In the Lay Servant Ministries Basic Course, Sandy and Brian Jackson discuss processes to help individuals discern and respond to God’s particular call on their lives. They encourage each person to recognize and employ his or her spiritual gifts for the church to become what God intended it to be. This course invites participants to consider the importance of exercising servant leadership, developing future leaders, remaining rooted in consistent spiritual practices, and being part of a group that holds members accountable in discipleship. It offers guidelines for optimal communication in leadership and presents numerous types of ministries in which lay servants may assume roles. Throughout the study, thoughtful questions provide excellent opportunities for individual consideration and group discussion.

 

This course is designed for 5 two-hour sessions. It is suitable for youth and adults.
