Lay Speaking

“The mission of the Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Local churches provide the most significant arena through which disciple-making occurs” (The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church, 2008, ¶120).


Lay Speaking Ministries is an excellent way to encourage spiritual growth and build Disciples of Christ. After all, Christianity can be classified as a lay movement that has evolved over 2,000 years. Seeing this reality, Duncan UMC has become a place for Christians to discover their God-given talents to further the Kingdom of Christ.


At Duncan, we believe all God’s people are ministers. To get more information on Lay Speaking, e-mail or visit the Marion District Lay Speaking Web site,
