Here you will find the validated course of study for the Certificate of Lay Ministry. While anyone is welcome to take these studies, these studies are specifically designed for laity who have gone through the steps outlined by the Manual for the Church of the Nazarene. Here you will find information on the process to become a Lay Minister. If you have any questions please visit the Requirements For The Certificate of Lay Ministry page or call the SDMI office.
Please take note that these courses are not equivalent to the validated courses for becoming an ordained minister in the Church of the Nazarene. While they do not fulfill educational requirements for those pursuing ordination they are validated for the Certificate of Lay Ministry.
