Commissioning of Newly Licensed Lay Ministers

January 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Constitution and Canons of the Episcopal Church provide for several licensed lay ministries:

  • Pastoral Leader
  • Worship Leader
  • Preacher
  • Eucharistic Minister
  • Eucharistic Visitor
  • Catechist
  • Evangelist

The new FAB (Formation for All the Baptized) School for Ministry will support the formation and licensure process for those lay ministries. To be licensed as one of these types of lay ministers requires participation in a discernment process, endorsement of clergy and vestry, formation classes, meeting with the Commission on Ministry, and a commissioning service. Licensure means that the person can serve not only in their sponsoring parish, but also potentially in other parishes in the Diocese who would benefit from those ministries.
