Comments

Trinity, Watertown is a worshipping and serving congregation anchored in the heart of downtown Watertown, NY, a small city near the eastern end of Lake Ontario.  Trinity church is a beautiful, large, historic church with a congregation who would like to be more active in their local community.  They are looking for a full-time rector who has the professional and personal qualities of a person whose heart is bound by God’s love, preaches God's word, teaches biblical history, administers with integrity, leads parishioners into service, and especially values music and pastoral care. Their new rector has a great opportunity to strengthen the parish's connection to the Fort Drum community.
