Community is dominantly conservative, but the liberals and conservative get along famously. The parish had two failed searches, but has been remarkably patient and understanding through the past 2 years.

Their outreach is the primary focus of the Wilson Ministry Center, under the auspices of the vestry. The rector also serves as executive director of the WMC.

Pretty church, lovely grounds, near the Susquehanna River. Rectory is part of the compensation. Finances are just fine.


Small town, one hour northeast of Baltimore. Usual challenges of a small church.
