Lay ministry

The School of Theological Studies skills people for a wide range of ministry roles in congregations, schools, various institutions and the general community. The roles include parish workers, youth workers, chaplains, counsellors, directors of Christian education, family ministry coordinators, and the like.

The Board for Lay Ministry oversees the ministry and well-being of lay workers. This includes caring for lay workers personally, assisting their employing bodies to support them locally, liaising with Australian Lutheran College regarding education and training programs, and providing financial support. The Board maintains a roll and register of all lay workers in the LCA, advises on salaries and allowances, and administers the Long Service Leave Fund. For further information, please refer to the Board for Lay Ministry web page.
