Teachers for the First Session:
We are delighted to introduce you to our first speakers on 6 November 2021:
God’s Global Vision for Women
Mary will be launching the Lifesprings School of Ministry in Lyon. A Baptist minister from Britain, she will be speaking on God’s global vision for women.
Following doctoral studies in theology, she held church pastorates in England and Wales before serving in two regional oversight roles. Other areas of ministry have included chaplaincy to a psychiatric hospital, contributing to BBC religious programming and university lecturing. She currently exercises her ministry through speaking and writing. She is author of “Quand les femmes se mettent à l’oeuvre” and “Women Without Walls,” a regular writer for The Preacher magazine, and a member of the editorial team of the blog ServirEnsemble. She is also a passionate classical musician and teaches the piano.
Women in Spiritual Leadership in the Kingdom of God
Lula, our second speaker, will be presenting a study of women in spiritual leadership. Swiss-born, she is finishing her bachelor’s degree in theology at the Faculté Libre de Théologie Évangélique (FLTE). She is also a part of the Servir Ensemble team (servirensemble.com). She’s working part-time at the French Scripture Union and part time as a pastoral intern in a Baptist church.
One of Lula’s greatest joys is to see people growing in their faith and knowledge of God and accompany them on the path set before them. She especially has a heart for women and encourages them to dare, to dream and to act for the Gospel. Passionate and committed, her ambition is to share this amazing God depicted in the Bible.
We are happy to answer any questions you have regarding the school. We are praying that many women in Europe will be encouraged, trained, and challenged by this new opportunity to grow in their faith and impact their homes, churches, and communities! The LSM Lyon Team LifespringsLyon2020@gmail.com

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an age limit?
At Lifesprings we say that ‘retirement’ doesn’t exist in God’s Kingdom! The training is accessible to every Christian woman over the age of 18, whatever her age, experience, background, family situation…
Can I try out the first session before I decide to register for the school?
You must register for the school before attending, however you can choose to pay for the first day only and decide whether to continue after that.
‘Pay as you go’ – Registration of 50€ + 75€ per day -> Total cost = 500€
‘Pay up front’ – Registration of 50€ + 400€ for all 6 days together -> Total cost = 450€
Is there a possibility of financial aid?
We would not wish financial problems to prevent you from participating. If you are in financial difficulties you can request a partial scholarship which will reduce the cost of the sessions.
What happens if I can’t participate in all sessions?
Of course we encourage you to participate in all the sessions but if you are registered and cannot be present on the day we will give you all the materials needed to catch up (notes, books etc.) and also the recording of the teaching session. The general rule is to be present in person for at least 4 out of 6 sessions. It is always possible to discuss with your coach and the dean on a case by case basis if an unplanned change occurs.
Do I get a diploma at the end of the course?
We are an ecumenical organisation and not affiliated with a particular church. If you attend at least 4 of the 6 sessions, have completed the necessary assignments and also completed the planned sections of your ministry project, then you will be awarded a Lifesprings International certificate of completion for the LSM – Lyon school.
Is child care provided?
Unfortunately we do not have the possibility to provide child care at the venue, however, given that the sessions are infrequent and only on Saturdays we hope that you can find a solution. The teaching days normally start at 9.00 a.m. and finish at 5.00p.m.
