The synod relies on lay preachers—individuals from congregations who have received instruction and formation for preaching—to fill pulpits across the NC Synod so that rostered ministers can take vacation, complete continuing education or, in some cases, provide a Service of the Word worship for congregations who do not have a regularly-called pastor right now. Applications are being accepted now through Friday, December 1, to be considered for the next cohort of lay preachers. It could be just what God is calling you to do! Questions? Contact Pastor Pam Northrup, Chair of the Advanced Lay Ministries Team.
