The synod office maintains a list of persons available to preach to cover pastoral vacations/leaves. The list includes pastors on leave from call, retired clergy, senior seminarians, and synod staff and lay persons authorized to preach in our congregations. Clergy on the list are available to preside at Communion, as well.
