Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

District trainings prepare lay leaders to engage in ministry


Several districts of the Oklahoma Conference are preparing people to engage in ministry whether or not they’re clergy.

In the coming months, many of the conference’s eight districts will host at least one event geared toward equipping lay members of the church to engage in ministry in their church and/or community. Church members are invited to attend and learn more about evangelism, discipleship, outreach and more.

A brief listing is available for each training.
