September 21, 2018 -


Glendale First UMC

Date & Time: September 21, 2018 (12:30PM – 8:30PM) thru September 22, 2018 (8:30AM – 5:00PM)

Event Target: Lay Members (18 and older) who sense a call to grow in leadership in their local church or community

Event Purpose: Learn more about the Certified Lay Ministry program; grow in knowledge of the UMC both practically and theologically; and interact with Conference leadership!

The CLM Orientation provides not only an overview of the process and intent of the Certified Lay Ministry program, but also an introductory overview of many aspects of local church ministry from worship and theology to discipleship and administration. Instructors include our Bishop Grant Hagiya, many Cabinet members, and experienced pastors and ministry directors from our Annual Conference. Participants will have time to listen, reflect, worship, and fellowship together.

Attendance at the Orientation does not require registration in the CLM program. All are invited to come and learn!
