NC Synod Lay Preaching Certification
In 2019, the NC Synod commissioned its first cohort of lay preachers. These lay preachers discovered new ways of engaging with Scripture and grew deeper in their own faith. Now they have the unique opportunity to serve. Lay preachers will be scheduled through the NC Synod office to preach in congregations with a leadership vacancy on Sunday mornings.
Lay preachers will serve at the endorsement of the bishop after completing training and practicum work.
The total cost for the program includes housing, food, instruction, and materials.
