About the Course:

This course focuses on the ministry of the lay servant who either regularly or occasionally leads a group, class, organization, or congregation in worship. The course is grounded in the classic patterns of Christian worship.

Participants will:

  • Be able to name the four elements of the Basic Pattern of Worship and describe the history of this pattern;
  • Practice leadership through the four elements of the basic pattern;
  • Receive and offer supportive feedback on planning and leading worship;
  • Explore and practice leading worship in a variety of settings, other patterns of worship, and multiple forms of prayer.

Order Your Book! All participants are expected to read Worshiping with United Methodists, by Hoyt Hickman, prior to the course.
