Lay Speakers’ 8th Annual Meeting

Convenes Feb. 25-27 at Glen Lake
Each year the Lay Speaker Ministries offers an introduction to lay speaking and opportunities for lay persons to further their education and to fulfill requirements for continuing certification.
The Lay Speaker Annual Meeting prepares lay speakers for service with training courses and certification for areas of ministry such as leading meetings, prayers and study programs, assisting in worship services and providing support to care-giving ministries.
There are over 1,000 trained lay speakers in the Central Texas Conference who provide a wide range of services to their congregations, their districts and the conference.
All interested lay persons are invited to come and enjoy the fellowship, spiritual renewal and the various courses:
            •   Basic Lay Speaking Ministries: The Basic Course
