Our diocesan Lay Preaching Program is now accepting applications for 2018-2020 (due July 1st). This program prepares lay people to be licensed by the Bishop to preach regularly in congregations in our diocese. We have been graced with some marvelously talented preachers and believe God is calling more. We need your help finding them. If you have people in your congregations or districts you believe may be called to regular preaching, please share this application with them. The most important qualities for success in the program are an attentiveness to God’s work in their own lives, and a relative comfort with public speaking.
