||Good Shepherd’s mission is ‘to reflect God’s love through our faith in action.’ We are a dynamic, outreach-oriented, volunteer-driven parish. Cashiers is a beautiful, rural seasonal community in Western North Carolina. Our average Sunday attendance goes from about 100 in winter months to about 240 in the shoulder and summer months. More information about our mission and ministry can be found at www.goodshepherdofcashiers.com.
We are searching for an Associate Priest to be with us 15-18 hours per week to share in celebrating and preaching on Sundays, teaching and pastoral care, outreach, and newcomer ministry. Specific hours and days-a-week outside of Sundays are negotiable, and we could envision this priest commuting to or living in Cashiers. The position is ideal for a seasoned priest transitioning to fewer hours or a semi-retired priest and is open to all qualified applicants ready to love and serve the people among whom they would serve.
We are ready to fill the position beginning fall of 2021. Compensation would likely range from $28,000 up, depending on experience, qualifications, hours and responsibilities.
