Past Students Said…
“Just completed my third module in the Certified Lay Ministry Program and I really enjoyed it. The class materials were relevent to the course, easy to follow and the interaction with other class participants were delightful. I am looking forward to the fourth class, and other classes through this program using this on-line format.” — Gail Joyner
“The course was excellent, the information was very informative and a good useful resource. The reading was practical, reader friendly and not overly extensive. One great positive was the information was encouraging and reflective of the ministry in helping and teaching beginners in become leaders in taking this new leadership role. Good Course!”
“This module has helped me understand what it is to live into the role of a CLM, not just when I’m fulfilling my job description, but how I am to live into the role of a CLM in my day-to-day life.”
“The course was very well laid out and expectations clearly explained. This course, like the previous two is challenging, and very thought provoking. I have learned a lot. The interaction with other students is very helpful.”
