The LSM Basic Course

North Central District Director of Lay Servant Ministries, David Palmer, and Florida Conference Lay Servant Ministries Director, Rod Groom, would like to share the news of an online course beginning May 26 which is just for United Methodists who live in The Florida Conference.

During this time of pandemic and isolation, many of us have to remain home and separated from family, church, and friends. Reconnect with our United Methodist history and faith and learn how to reach out to others by participating in this one-of-a-kind pilot course in Lay Servant Ministries offered at a discount price. We encourage you to join with us as we connect and serve during COVID-19.

This online course is for those who are hungry to know how God can use them to help others during COVID-19. This 3-week-course will give you clarity around your talents and the needs of your community. Learn online while connecting with others who want to lead better without losing time from your work and loved ones. Easy and doable even if you are new to online learning.
The Basic Course is a requirement towards becoming a Certified Lay Servant, but it is open to all lay members in The Florida Conference. Six of the required 10 hours will be offered online with an additional four hours through use of Zoom Meeting software. This course is being offered online on a limited basis to meet needs during The COVID-19 pandemic and is only approved for use within The Florida Conference.
