How to Register

This fall we are offering two classes for you to choose from: Lay Pastoral Care and Leading Prayer. All classes will be held on ZOOM. Your ZOOM link will emailed to you before the beginning of the class. Since classes are on ZOOM, you may sign up for a class schedule that suits your schedule regardless of the region.

  • Registration fee is $35. Registration link is provided below. Local churches are encouraged to pay the registration fee for their members.
  • Students must purchase their own participant’s book. Use book links provided below.

A confirmation email will be sent after registration is received.Registration should be received two weeks prior to the first scheduled session (i.e, October 2 for the class that starts October 16). Classes may be cancelled for insufficient enrollment. In that event, students will be encouraged to sign up for another region’s schedule.

Completing the Basic Class is a prerequisite before enrolling in an advanced/certified course.

Questions may be directed to your district director here.
