Lay Ministry Training Program
Rev. Dr. Shawn P. Stapleton
Center for Congregational Leadership Workshop Coordinator

Many, if not most, of you are actively involved in critical ministries in your congregation. You serve your church brothers and sisters faithfully and take your faith seriously. You are true servants of Christ within your community.

If you are feeling called to go deeper in that journey, the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC) is here to help. This September, we are launching a revised and updated Lay Ministry Training Program tailored to servants just like you. This program has three levels of instructional intensity, designed to address whatever level of service you may feel called to engage.
·        Level 1: DISCIPLESHIP – This level is like advanced Bible Study to bring you to a deeper relationship with the Lord;
·        Level 2: LAY LEADERSHIP – This level will prepare you to more effectively serve your local congregation as a deacon, trustee, moderator, or other lay leader;
·        Level 3: PASTORAL LEADERSHIP – This level prepares you to lead a congregation of saints as a licensed lay pastor.

Each student will work closely with an approved mentor in a virtual learning environment with updated curriculum materials that reflect a diversity of biblical and theological scholarship.
