A Lay Leader is an individual who commits to lead individual ministries of the Church. Lay Leaders act as volunteers who choose to bring their specific talents and skills into the life of the church. They may be teachers, mission leaders, group coordinators, church staff or committee members filling the role of Christ’s representatives in the world. Lay leaders commit to receiving Methodist leadership training and to conducting themselves in a manner that reflects the love of Jesus Christ. Lay Leaders are licensed annually by the Dean of a College on the recommendation of the PPR.
