Licensed Lay Ministry
All baptized persons are called to be ministers, according to their different gifts.
This ministry can be exercised in a variety of different ways among the laity and the ordained. Working together with the Commission on the Ministry of the Baptized, the European Institute of Christian Studies provides training and formation for the empowerment of all ministers, whether they are lay or ordained.
