Who is invited? People who love God and have a message to share about faith, God, Jesus and the Holy
Why is teaching lay people about preaching important?
1. In Ephesians 4:12-13 it says that it is our task to equip the followers of Jesus for ministry. God gives
a wide variety of people the gift of preaching.
2. It is healthy for a congregation to hear a wide variety of preachers who can be used by God to bring
the message. Any congregation has people who have varied learning styles and a wide range of
preachers can be uplifting and helpful.
3. Lay preachers can become vital leaders in a congregation.
4. Lay preachers come with a different perspective on ministry and their voice is a blessing.
5. Lay preachers are wonderful resources when a Called pastor is on vacation, at a church conference,
away for Continuing Education, a family emergency or is ill.
