Class Description

Designed for Part-Time Local Pastors and Certified Lay Ministers, but open to any person, clergy or lay, this course provides a clear understanding of the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. It includes practical guidance for interpreting the sacraments to others, as well as how to address difficult situations in the parish. Topics to be covered include God’s initiative and human response in baptism, how to deal with someone who wants to be re-baptized, understanding one’s own role in the sacraments, and making communion more meaningful.

Course content is delivered primarily through an interview with Rev. Dr. Vicki Gordy-Stith, Director of Connectional Ministries for the Peninsula-Delaware Conference and former Dover District Superintendent. There are also two live online sessions where the instructor presents material and interacts with students.

This course is one of the required courses for the Certificate in Congregational Leadership (CCL) program. Successful completion of this course fulfills 1.0 CEU.
