Challenges

We're looking to grow both spiritually and numerically.  We're seeking ways to reach out to the larger community.

We delight in the age diversity we have now in our parish and hope that as we continue to grow, we will welcome people of all ages.

Comments

We are seeking a passionate spiritual leader who is interested in getting to know us, learning our stories and joining our faith community. We look for skills that include biblical preaching and teaching and the ability to help people apply scriptural truths to their individual lives. We would also like a priest who will provide counseling and who has a heart for pastoral care.

We see ourselves as a warm, welcoming community that is excited about growing spiritually and adding new people to our congregation. We encourage you to contact us if you are interested in learning more about this position.

Please ask us about our relationships with previous clergy; we've learned a lot from what's gone well and what hasn't.
