Comments

St. Barnabas Episcopal Church is a pastoral sized congregation located in the Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn The congregation has a solid history of community outreach and has been well-served by lay leadership, a priority of the congregation, since its founding. The worship style can best be described as high-church, and features a robust music program offering everything from traditional hymns to spirituals to more contemporary music.

St. Barnabas is seeking a priest who will walk alongside parishioners in their journey of faith, support the mission and ministries of the congregation and be an approachable leader.

The Village of Glen Ellyn is located 22 miles outside of the City of Chicago, accessible from several expressways and also via the commuter train system. The village itself has a vibrant downtown with ample restaurants and shops, and in the summer, music festivals and farmers markets. The local school districts are highly rated, and there are several college campuses nearby in DuPage county as well.
