Nominations Now Accepted for 2016 Lay Person of the Year!

The deadline for submitting nominations is March 7, 2016!

The Laity Council is soliciting nominations for the Bishop Gerald Kennedy Award (Lay Person of the Year).

In 1961, the Bishop Gerald Kennedy Award was established. It was to be given annually to a person or persons for distinguished service, selected by a committee appointed by the Bishop. Today that responsibility rests with the Laity Council. After 1980 it was given to an outstanding Lay Man and Lay Woman each year. In 2004, a third category was added to name an outstanding Young Adult Lay Person. The award is now presented at the recipient’s local church by the Laity Council – recipients are also named during the annual conference session and acknowledged at the Laity Dinner.

For specific guidelines on lay person qualifications and how to submit a nomination, download the documents below.
