We seek a rector who demonstrates preaching excellence and spiritual leadership. We appreciate intelligent, theological, love-centered sermons.

We value pastoral care for all people, recognizing the diversity in our congregation. We are looking for a priest who is personable, caring, and concerned for our parishioners' well-being. We seek a rector who will work with us to welcome new members from all communities of people to serve God. Our next rector will need to work closely with our members and appreciate our lay-led traditions, but also challenge us to take up new spiritual tasks. Social justice and interfaith relationships are important aspects of our ministry and we look to our new rector to walk with us as we engage with the larger community to strengthen these ties.


Rising to the challenge to discover God's activity in our neighborhoods and connect the love of Christ to 21st century America.
