Lay Ministry Formation

Lay Ministry Formation is a cohort-based, committed journey to discern and deepen one’s calling as a minister in context. The two-year formation process engages the Christian tradition through Biblical and theological frames, contextual realities, and practical functions of congregational and community life. This paid certificate program allows participants, through learning retreats and online small groups, to grow in their own spiritual leadership alongside professionally trained scholars in their respective fields.
