We are excited to begin the search for our next rector who will boldly proclaim the Gospel, faithfully administer the sacraments, and serve God's people with love and compassion. Our congregation brings many talents and skills. We desire a rector who will lead, inspire, and challenge us to be the best version of who God is calling us to be.

We are a congregation seeking to live our our mission statement in our ministries, making the most of opportunities to love God and our neighbors using the gifts with which God blesses us.


We recognize that we are now a pastoral  sized church still operating in a program size paradigm. We seek a rector who can help us identify what and how to change and identify and provide the necessary skills to equip us. We don't expect someone to bring all the answers but help us ask the right questions, discern next steps, and inspire us to action.

Fundamentally, we are at a crossroads but excited about future possibilities. We need new perspectives to discern which current ministries are most effective, which can be sunset, and most importantly, what will help us live more fully into our calling as Christians.
