Licensed Lay Preachers are licensed to preach in any congregation in the diocese and provide a rich opportunity for you to hear additional voices from the pulpit. Lay Preachers have completed comprehensive training in sermon preparation, delivery, and biblical interpretation.
If you would like to invite a Licensed Lay Preacher to your congregation, contact them directly (the list is linked below). Congregations are expected to reimburse mileage expenses according to IRS guidelines. As you are able, an honorarium of $50 is welcomed by Lay Preachers.
