Staunton District Lay Leader
Associate Lay Leader
Lay Servant/Lay Speaker Training district training opportunities are on hold right now but virtual classes are available at https://vaumc.org/laity-district-and-conference-training/
The Lay Servant Academy is about equipping Laity (those who are not clergy) to carry out the mission of the church. All of the courses offered are open to anyone who would like to take one. Each course is designed to help those serving the local church learn more about leadership, personal faith development, and a deeper understanding of the United Methodist church.
Lay Servant Ministries offers two avenues of recognition and training that go beyond the local church. Many of the courses offered this year will support those who are seeking to become Certified Lay Servants and Lay Speakers.
