Lay Servants are lay members of the United Methodist Church who are called to give primary attention to service within the local church. They may hear their call in the Lay Servant Ministries Basic Course and explore it through the advanced course Spiritual Gifts.
When Lay Servants are called, equipped, sent and effectively deployed, the missional results within the local congregation can energize the entire laity, so that together, we can make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world!
