Part-Time Ministerial Leaders Education Program

posted on July 29

Part-Time Ministerial Leaders, or PML, is an educational multi-tool that is designed to be both a program (like a degree) and individual courses (freestanding course opportunities). Its dual purpose fulfills four educational needs in our Conference.

Who is PML for?

  • Any lay person who wants to learn more about the Methodist tradition
  • PML is the designated educational program for those pursuing Certified Lay Minister
  • It’s the Missouri Course of Study program available to local pastors who have recently completed licensing school
  • PML serves as an extension school for regular Course of Study. It’s available to part-time local pastors needing to fulfill a regular COS course.

How do I get started?

For those seeking to be Certified Lay Ministers and local pastors who have recently completed licensing school, PML begins with the PML Introduction, a digital course offered on Canvas.
