Liturgical style and practice

Traditional liturgy and style. High value on good, broad church, liturgy.


Outreach and fellowship centered parish in a small town that is revitalizing quickly.  Major renovations have been completed.  Politically and theologically diverse congregation.  Low cost of living with high quality of life.


Small town in southern West Virginia with significant poverty in the area.  Clergy will need to help reengage members who have drifted away during the pandemic.
