We are always looking for people willing to share their wisdom, experience and passion for ministry.  Contact Cheryl Nolan or the NH District Office today!

Important Reminder: A refresher course is required every three years to remain a Lay Servant. To become a Certified Lay Servant and serve outside your local congregation, you must take one advanced course and continue by taking at least one advanced course every three years. All Lay Servants must submit an  report of activities and be approved annually at their church conference.
