Heartland District Lay Servant Advanced Course: Spiritual Gifts (Session 1: Thursday, June 24 6-8pm - Session 2: Saturday, June 26 9am-4pm)

Rev. Dr. Emanuel Cleaver III
Rev. Dr. Emanuel Cleaver III is the dynamic senior pastor of St. James United Methodist Church in Kansas City, Missouri.  He leads St. James in word and by example, urging them to always be mindful of the church’s motto, “Connecting people with God in practical ways.”  His expertise is rooted in his experience and the knowledge he acquired while working toward a Master of Divinity, which he received in 1999 from the Methodist Theological School in Ohio. Following that, he completed his Doctor of Ministry at St. Paul School of Theology, Kansas City, MO.  He is the author of two books: “Pastor On Track: Reclaiming Our True Role”, and “What Is the Bible & Who Is It For?: A Book for Beginners, Skeptics, and Seekers.”
