The Pulpit Supply program is designed to give students experience and to help meet temporary needs of area congregations, such as when the regular pastor is out of town, sick, or otherwise unable to conduct services. For longer-term needs, we recommend hiring a student pastor.  Both cases are covered in the guidelines document.  Click here to review the guidelines document.
