The Lay Academy for Church Excellence L.A.C.E. begins with the Core course – foundational sessions that lay the framework for all leadership in mission and ministry.  After completion of the Core course, persons are invited to choose either the lay speaker or lay servant track for additional training.  Following completion of both the core course and either track, when approved by the local church and the district committee, persons may receive certification as a lay speaker or lay servant.

Lunch will be provided.  No cost to attend, but donations are welcomed.

Organizer of LACE Advanced Training: Rediscovering Your Spiritual Gifts

The Owensboro L.A.C.E. (Lay Academy of Church Excellence) Team exists to help people find their place in Lay Ministry within the United Methodist Church.  Our goal is to provide quality training that enables laity to discover gifts and graces they possess, as well as give them knowledge and understanding which will help equip them for the work of Lay ministry.
