The mission of the Lay Servant Ministries is to equip God's People to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-12

The Basic Course is for those just beginning in the Lay Servant Ministries.  After the Basic Course, you must complete an Advanced Course to become a Certified Lay Servant.  Certified Lay Servants must complete an Advanced Course every three years in order to remain certified.  Individuals desiring to maintain the status of a Local Church Lay Servant with the District and Conference are required to take a Lay Servant Course every three (3) years.
