Pulpit Supply

We recommend the following compensation for pulpit supply:


One Service………………………………………$150.00 – $250.00

Each Additional Service………………………….$50.00

Plus the current IRS rate for the ROUND TRIP mileage

Note: The range of the pulpit supply recommendation has also been broadened.  This is in recognition of the reality that the local context and the cost of living vary widely across the Virginia Synod.  We encourage congregation councils to factor in the complexity of their context when determining where they fall within this recommended range.  In addition, for some congregations the pulpit supply recommendations also serve as one of the guidelines used to determine honorarium gifts for funerals and weddings. We believe that the 2017-2018 recommendation is an accurate reflection of the actual time and effort expended in pulpit supply, and that it honors the high value which we place on the ministry of Word and Sacrament in our midst.

Sermon Resources

The Office of the Bishop has invited Rostered Ministers of the Virginia Synod to prepare sermons for the Sundays between September 30th, 2018 and Pentecost Sunday, June 9, 2019. These sermons will follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) texts and will be suitable to be read by a lay person in any congregation in the Virginia Synod.

The sermons provided below are intended for use in congregational settings where all other options for pastoral leadership have been exhausted; they are not intended to replace personal, pastoral leadership. We know that congregations may at times struggle to find someone to preach on Sunday morning and as a result find their congregation in need of appropriate resources to provide Sunday sermons. These sermons will help provide biblically, theologically, and Confessionally sound proclamation in Virginia Synod congregations.

If you have a question about the sermon resources, please contact Assistant to the Bishop, Pastor Kelly Bayer Derrick at bayerderrick@vasynod.org
