Pulpit Supply Program

Connecting the Church and the Academy through meaningful engagement. 

Your church can host a Yale Divinity School student through the Andover Newton Seminary Pulpit Supply Program to preach, pray, and preside over worship leadership. 

Our students are willing and eager to fill pulpits as they advance through seminary and toward their callings. The goal of the Pulpit Supply Program is twofold: 

1. To provide students an opportunity to hone their homiletical skills, to practice worship leadership, and to create connections and community with churches in their own denominations, and beyond. 

2. Andover Newton recognizes that many churches are in transition, and we are aware of the unique and difficult circumstances brought upon faith communities by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we equip students for faithful leadership in a variety of settings, we know that the needs of the church are not only in the future, but in the present. We match seminary students and churches for pulpit supply to facilitate growth, learning, and support for both.
