A part time liturgist, someone who's full time job provides their living but once a week they get out and read a few passages from The Abiding Book to their congregation (which may only be their family and a few friends). Chances are if anything important arose they would be completely out of their depth. I think a lot of remote places with small congregations handle it this way. It's even possible there is a church which relies entirely on part-time litugists, the way RW Methodists have lay readers rather than a separate clergy.
