Spring Retreat 2011

Rolling Ridge Conference Center, N. Andover, MA


  • For one member of the 2011 graduating class, Eric Lane,

  • the best thing about the school has been the people he’s met, especially his classmates and instructors.

  • “I've felt a deeper connection to the church and the individuals in it,” said Lane,

  • “because of the experiences I've had at the School of Lay Ministry, not to mention a deeper understanding of the Bible.”
