Lay Preacher Training Initiative
The Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina is one of six dioceses awarded a grant from the Episcopal Preaching Foundation to pilot the Foundation’s Lay Preacher Training Initiative (LPTI). The goal of the program is to develop a robust cadre of lay preachers drawn from within their local communities who can supplement ordained clergy in the pulpit. By training and supporting lay preachers in The Episcopal Church, the program aims to establish lay preaching and lay leadership as a fourth dimension of diocesan leadership in the Episcopal Church alongside bishops, priests and deacons.
