Certified Lay Ministry

Laity have long been the stronghold of Methodism and essential to the Wesleyan movement. John Wesley recognized early the gifts of the laity and called them out raising up new leaders as exhorters, class leaders, and lay preachers.

The Global Methodist Church also recognizes the importance of such a lay led movement and has made certified lay ministry a priority in its foundational stages of ministry.

Therefore, we have a vital leadership path for lay people as a Certified Lay Minister.
