They describe themselves as a loving Christian community with a long history of generosity. They have a pool of lay leaders and a well maintained facility in a good area. They have a commitment to and history with healing ministry.
They have done deep and excellent work with their interim rector.
They name their challenges as:
Reversing a decline in membership. Broaden and revitalize the engagement of the congregation. Reinvigorating their ministries. Become more transparent and effective in stewardship and keeping the worship engaging and inclusive.
St. Mark's is looking for a rector with strong administrative experience. There is work to be done in leadership development and community engagement. They have a clear view of the challenges and are ready to follow a good and experienced leader.
