Prerequisite: Basic LSM

This course helps participants understand their spiritual gifts and how the church can use those gifts to fulfill its mission and ministry. Participants will also learn what it means to be a spiritual leader and will be equipped to lead others in exploring and using their spiritual gifts.

  • All those seeking certification as a Certified Lay Servant are invited to attend. To learn more about Lay Servant Ministries, click here.
  • Attendance is required at all sessions for credit.
  • Provide your own book: Each One a Minister, a revised and enlarged edition of Carter’s previous book by the same title, begins with a 6-session study of Ephesians. Carter engages the reader in discovering the meaning of church, ministry, and gifts — from the early church up to the present. (available at The Upper Room)
    • As a follow-up to the Bible study, readers and study groups look at ways in which God’s gifts are practical as well as spiritual. Four ministry categories, closely connected to the congregational primary task (receive, relate, equip, send), are identified. Scripture readings, activities, and ways to implement specific ministries are suggested.
    • Designed to encourage individuals to discover God’s call to ministry in their own lives, Each One a Minister leads toward practical ways of using gifts in ministries in our congregations and in our communities. An ideal resource for clergy, lay leaders, study groups, and others seeking to identify and use their gifts in meaningful ways.


You will receive the Zoom link in your registration confirmation.
