Active lay ministry with lay leadership of key ministry areas. Well-established outreach ministries. Centrally located, downtown church with good community relations. Strong commitment to spiritual growth. Excellent ecumenical and interfaith connections. New members joining regularly. Successful Capital Campaign in Bicentennial year (2017). Open and affirming parish with many members from the LGBTQ community. Powerful, intentional ministry of hospitality.
Annual giving is insufficient to meet expenses. Congregation is aging. Shrinking number of congregants willing/able to take leadership roles. Building in need of updating (although structurally sound).
St. Paul's is committed in supporting a full-time curacy, and we are looking for a newly-ordained transitional deacon to begin a two-year contract in summer 2019. The successful candidate will be a person of deep faith, who is wise, energetic, creative, self-motivated, a good team player, and able to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds. (S)he will have particular responsibility for Children and Youth ministries, including serving as a mentor to a local middle-schooler. (S)he will take an active role in Adult Christian Education and Spiritual Formation ministries (perhaps mentoring an EfM group), as well as participating in the full range of liturgical, pastoral, outreach, and fellowship ministries.
