The New Zealand Lay Preachers Association is an ecumenical body created to support and resource people who have been licensed by their respective church demonination to undertake the role of a lay preacher. At the request of the preacher’s own denomination, the NZLPA issues certificates to recognise the lay preachers’ calling and capability to lead worship. We also support and resource lay preachers with a quarterly publication and opportunities for training. You can read more about the society here.
