Certified Lay Minister (CLM) Training
We hope to schedule a training in Spring 2022. Contact Suzette Tidrick if interested. E-Mail
Some districts have postponed in-person LSM courses, but you do not have to attend a training in your district. There are also a variety of advanced courses are available online year-round. Fall 2021 classes will be shared here as we receive them, contact your District Director of LSM if you have any questions.
Anyone may take lay servant training courses for spiritual development, even if you do not intend to serve as a lay servant. Taking a lay servant class does not obligate you to speak publicly. You may enroll in courses offered in any district in the spring and fall or in the online courses. Class participants are not required to take the BASIC course prior to other classes, but persons new to lay servant ministries are strongly encouraged to take the BASIC course first. However, if you do wish to be recognized as a ‘lay servant’ by the East Ohio Conference, the BASIC course is a requirement.
