The Lay Pastor program is designed to help members across the Rocky Mountain Conference to have the tools and knowledge to be able to be more effective as they minister to their community, help to grow a healthy and active local church, and to support their local pastor. Each time we meet we will have a theological focus as well as a ministry based focus.
