Western Association Substitute Preachers
This list is to help churches find a preacher to fill in for a Sunday or two. We have included people we believe are capable preachers, but they may not all be authorized to perform the sacraments (for example, some of these people are MIDs or lay ministers).
Pastors on this list represent a wide variety of theological perspectives and preaching styles. Congregations seeking a substitute preacher may wish to discuss their expectations with candidates before inviting them to preach.
These lists are maintained by the Association Committees on Ministry, and ministers who want to be included should contact the COM Chairs for their Association.
If your church needs a substitute preacher to cover for a longer period of time, please contact:
