Proclaimers of the word are called to a solemn and unique ministry as proclaimers of God’s Holy Word. In this vital ministry, they serve the entire worshipping community as an instrument of God’s very voice, which is present in the Word.
Responding to the call to serve at the Lord’s altar by proclaiming the Word, you will strengthen the faith of the members of the assembly and enable them to share the presence of Christ in their homes, their workplaces, and their interactions with the larger community.
As proclaimer of the Word of God, it is important not to change the wording of the Scriptures as written due to personal ideals. The Word of God is sacred and has been translated by biblical scholars for God’s people. Even small modifications could offend the faithful.
Occasionally, the Liturgy Committee will hold Reader’s workshops mainly based on voice projection and expression to assist readers in delivering the Word to the best of their ability. It is anticipated that readers will attend these opportunities as part of their ministry.
