Lay Leadership Initiative Academy Recognition

Written by Michelle Johnson-Puckett on .

Congratulations to our first class of the South District Lay Leadership Initiative Academy. Our District Superintendent, Kip Gilts, shared at last week’s Pre-Conference Meeting that the South District had 30 participants in our inaugural session and 28 persons completed the courses on Leadership, Congregational Care, and Teaching. In addition to completing one of these equipping tracks, 20 others completed the United Methodism 101 study. Way to go!!

We are committed to developing transforming lay and clergy leaders. Lay Leadership Initiative is one of the ways that we are equipping laity to meet the needs in their particular ministry setting. Thank you for to those participants for their commitment to this effort. We hope that God richly blesses the ministry to which God has called them.
