St Paul's is seeking a priest for pastoral care, community involvement, preaching, and spiritual leadership to join and support them in ministry to the community.  They value the companionship of each other, the opportunity to reach out to help others in the community, and the ability to continue as a presence in Greenville.  Financial resources allow them to seek a priest PT on their own or to join in sharing a priest with St Paul's, Richmond IN, about a 30-minute drive from one parish to the other.  While the two parishes are not yet looking to share ministry, they are open to sharing a priest so that the priest is available to the congregations together on a full-time basis.  This creative shared clergy arrangement is designed to provide the greatest amount of the priest's time spent with each congregation without expectations leading to burn out.  The two diocesan bishops welcome this arrangement and staff from both dioceses will work with the two congregations and the priest in support of it.
