Enter the Laity Address Challenge
The Conference Board of Laity is pleased to invite all laypersons in the New England Annual Conference to enter the Laity Address Challenge to have an opportunity to give the Laity Address at the 2023 Annual Conference.

The 2023 Annual Conference will be held June 8-10 at the Doubletree by Hilton Manchester Downtown, Manchester, NH. The Laity Address is tentatively scheduled for Saturday morning either in person or pre-recorded.

Our Annual Conference theme is “Draw the circle wider still ...” Our guiding scripture is Philippians 4:4-9 (CEB). The address must use those as its theme.

The address should be 15-20 minutes long. Entrants must submit a written copy of their entire proposed address along with a video of themselves delivering the first 5 minutes of the address.

The deadline to submit your proposed address and video is May 5, 2023. For more information on how to submit your entry or to ask any questions about entering the challenge, please email Co-Associate Conference Lay Leader Joan Farrar at cw.dll.acll@gmail.com or call 978-582-4670.
