Thank you for your interest in Lay Renewal Ministries. For six decades, LRM has been serving churches. We base our ministry on The Process of Renewal. We believe that churches are maximally effective as they intentionally seek to renew, motivate and equip their people. The process of renewal includes components of leadership development, congregational renewal, mission vision and strategy, and resourcing and equipping your people.

 

Our Mission

Purpose

To serve the local church as it renews, motivates and equips men and women for ministry.

Vision

Enabled by the Word of God and empowered by the Holy Spirit, Lay Renewal Ministries strives to serve the local church through the Process of Renewal, igniting a passion for ministry and equipping disciples to reach their community and the world for the Gospel of Christ Jesus.

We will provide dynamic equipping opportunities through weekend Celebrations. We will provide excellent leadership equipping opportunities through on-site events and equipping resources. We will provide sound consultation and partnership with churches in developing Biblical strategic plans. We will provide quality Christian resources to educate and equip for Biblical spiritual growth.

Philosophy

Lay Renewal Ministries believes that churches and individuals grow as they subscribe to an intentional process of renewal. This process promotes the belief that vital churches must consistently subscribe to specific endeavors to enhance their renewal. Lay Renewal Ministries endorses these components of the Process of Renewal which include:

  • Leadership Development
  • Congregational Renewal and Celebration
  • Master Planning
  • Resourcing and Equipping

 

History

The premise, motivation and experience of Lay Renewal Ministries is based on decades of service working in the local church and with pastors, church leaders and congregations. Established in 1954, thousands of churches and tens of thousands of individuals have been touched by God through Lay Renewal Ministries. LRM will call upon those years of experience and an ongoing study of the church to encourage, equip and engage the church to make disciples. This ministry will be built as dedicated church men and women resolve to enter a new level of commitment and connection through their own churches and the greater Church of Jesus Christ.

Scriptural Basis

“To prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Song of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” –Ephesians 4:12-13

God has given us the keys to unlock the power of His love in the world.

We simply must learn to use them.
