Lay Servant Ministry Courses: Prepare to Teach
All laity are invited to participate in Lay Servant Ministries courses, not just persons seeking to become a Local Lay Servant or Certified Lay Servant.
Prepare to Teach
This is the second of two courses (other course: Teach Adults) for those who want to become an Accredited Lay Servant Ministries Course Instructor in the NTC, or for anyone who teaches adults in a church setting.

(NOTE: This is a one-day-only class – NOT for “Advanced Course” credit)
