Georgia-Cumberland Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

Lay Pastor Training & Support

The Lay Pastor Program is designed to empower lay leaders in GCC to fulfill our mission by Growing Disciples Through Shared Leadership, as they serve in the role of a lay pastor or directional leader of a group planting a new church, or of an established church.  

This allows us to work together and continue to advance the Kingdom; faster, further, broader, and deeper, as we share the love of Christ and prepare people for the soon return of Jesus!


"And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ" (Eph. 4:11-12).
