Ros, like many other Lay Preachers, spent several years in a number of different churches completing the requirements to qualify as a Lay Preacher. The studies included studying and being examined on the Holy Scriptures (Old and New Testaments), Homiletics, Christology and leading worship under the guidance and coaching of a number of people in a number of Uniting Churches including Crookwell, Harden, Temora and Cootamundra.
