We are offering a special Lay Servant Ministry Advanced Class entitled "Called to Preach." The class will be taught by the District Superintendent, Rev. Jay Therrell and is designed for those who have not completed a formal preaching training, for pastors seeking a basic refresher course, and for others who are called upon to preach in a pastor's absence. This class will be offered in four sessions and will be held on the following dates:
January 7, 2019, 7-9 p.m.
January 14, 2019, 7-9 p.m.
January 28, 2019, 7-9 p.m.
February 4, 2019, 6:30-9 p.m.
All classes will be held at the District Office, 1415 LaSalle Street, Jacksonville, 32207. You MUST attend all classes in order to receive certification. Homework will be assigned after each session. If you are unable to attend all of the sessions, please do not register. Class size is limited to 12 people.
This is a trial run for this format of training. If it goes well, we may open this up in other areas of the district in the future. Cost is $20 per person. We will NOT provide food during this training, so feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks.
The required book is "From Pew to Pulpit", by Clifton F. Guthrie. ISBN #978-0-678706-660-5. This book is available on Cokesbury.com, Amazon.com and other online sites. Please purchase the book in advance of the class.
