Position: Full-time Associate (priest or transitional deacon) on a three full-time clergy team at the Church of St. Luke in the Fields, Manhattan.

Position Outline:
In addition to shared parish ministry with the other clergy, this Associate position has particular responsibility for: formation for Children, Youth and Families (CYF); parish life and small groups; newcomer welcome and integration; and Chaplaincy for St Luke’s School. In addition to excellent homiletical skills and appropriate liturgical sensibilities for a progressive, modern Anglo-Catholic parish, the Associate will need to proactively and creatively engage the challenges of building community in a highly urban setting. The Associate will also have a passion for forming Christian community through parish life, CYF, and small groups, as well as some skills and experience in this area. The additional gifts and qualities sought in this priest (or transitional deacon) include: an ability to chant the liturgy; hard-working; good administrator and oral/written communicator; visionary in their ministry goals; resilient; street-smart; someone who enjoys interacting with a wide variety of people and needs; a team player; someone who is not easily manipulated but remains "present" and engaged, compassionate, and perceptive. Must be comfortable in a progressive and diverse modern Anglo-Catholic parish. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience.
