February 26, 2019

TULSA – The Tulsa laity thank God for the culmination of the course, "Lay Preacher." The course is part of the Adventist Laity Seminary Program from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Mich. Ricardo Norton is the program director.

The program was held in Oklahoma from March 10 to Sept. 2, 2018 with support and collaboration from the conference administration and local church pastors. The six-month program trained and educated the members on leading and serving in a ministerial capacity. At the end of the program, professors and students alike celebrated with a formal graduation ceremony at the Garnett Seventh-day Adventist Spanish Company.

A total of 33 graduates, both men and women, ranging from young to old graduated from the program. Members are excited about the opportunity to put their training into practice for the kingdom of God.
