Deacon & Deaconess Training

We currently have a number of men and women in the LCMS Lay Ministry training program to become a Deaconess or Deacon.  The classes are taught at various locations throughout the area, depending upon the location of the instructor.  Classes offered at Ascension Lutheran Church, and taught by Pastor Michael are open to all, whether you wish to become a Lay Minister or not.  If you desire to take the class for Lay Ministry training credit, the cost is $200 per class.

If you are interested, and would like to be notified of new classes being offered at Ascension, please contact the church office at (310) 793-7100.  To find information regarding the Lay Ministry program, follow this link:
