Leadership UMC
LUMC, a program of the North Georgia Conference Board of Laity, is recognized throughout the country as a premier program for equipping laity to serve in partnership with clergy for mission and ministry within the community and around the globe.  LUMC is unique in its design to offer Methodist laity an experience that mentors graduates for a life-long journey “in the connection.”  LUMC begins its 17th consecutive year of successful training on November 9-10, 2018.  We are looking for 4 laity from the LaGrange District to participate in this year’s program.  The district will pay a portion of your cost, your church is responsible for a portion and participants pay a portion.  Applications should be submitted to the district office by September 16.  For more information or to get an application, contact the district office or visit the district website.
