Lay Servant Ministry


We proudly serve the Spartanburg District in the roles of caring,
leading and communicating. We are available to serve you when the
opportunity arise. We will speak for special occasions, for programs,
for meetings – upon special request or invitation from a pastor or committee chairperson.
For several years we have provided speakers to conduct worship services
at a local nursing home. They are trained and well prepared to be
caring and to do an excellent job in that setting.
We have well prepared speakers to fill pulpits in the absence of the
pastor. We prefer to have advance notice, but are capable of filling
the need in an emergency or with short notice. We are ready and eager
to serve and we encourage you to call upon us.
The Spartanburg District offer courses in the Spring and Fall each
year. We offer Basic along with two or three Advanced Courses each
session. Periodically we offer a Refresher and a Youth Basic Course.
We are available upon a request to come to your local church to offer
a course, if and when needed. We are here ready, willing and able to
serve. Let us fill your needs.
