A Partnership between Western KY Presbytery
and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

     Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ seeking to grown in faith? Has the Holy Spirit been “nudging” you to do something  MORE? Are you looking for something that would encourage you to become more disciplined about studying God’s Word?  Are you seeking ways to strengthen the teaching or leadership skills that you offer to your local congregation? Would you be  interested in learning more about the Presbyterian tradition, the Biblical message, the Reformed Faith, Spiritual disciplines  and exploring what you believe? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then LAY LEADERSHIP TRAINING is the  beginning to answering such questions!

“Diploma School”

   Every other month, we meet with leadership from either Louisville Seminary or Western KY Presbytery. Topics range from  Biblical Studies to Pastoral Theology, from “languages of the Bible” to “the liturgy of worship.” This exciting twelve (12)  session training is held at Best Western in Hopkinsville, KY. Typically the schedule is during the first Friday/Saturday of  these months: January, March, May, July, September, and November. After the completion of 12 modules, you will earn a  Diploma of Pastoral Studies from Louisville Seminary. Diplomas are awarded each May during the seminary graduation  ceremony.Even if you are not feeling called to complete the program, but feel called to some of the modules – you are always  welcomed to attend
