  • Lay Ministry Institute

    Jun 20, 2017

    The Lay Ministry Institute is a multi-part training event for lay people who want to become stronger leaders in their local congregations and in the wider ABCCONN community.

    This year the LMI will be held on:

    • Cycle 1 - August 4-9, Wisdom House Retreat Center in Litchfield
    • Cycle 2 - September 8-9, Holy Family Retreat Center in West Hartford
    • Cycle 3 - November 11, Connecticut Baptist Homes

    The program costs $450 per individual but it is hoped that the participant's church can help offset the cost by at least $100.
