St. James is a program-resource sized congregation with vibrant, healthy lay leadership. Black Mountain is a growing town 15 miles outside Asheville and has a thriving ministry with families and children. St. James is very active in social justice ministries and outreach in the wider community. The parish is blessed with excellent music ministries and is financially stable. Parishioners appreciate and value nurturing their spirituality and expect excellent faith formation for all ages.


St. James is exploring its next chapter of how to continue connecting with the wider community in new ways and will need a rector with collaborative leadership style, excellent preaching and solid passion in pastoral care.
