Job Description
This is a call to full-time ministry in our parish, with a primary focus on Campus Ministry. The Assistant to the Rector of Holy Trinity also participates fully in the worship and formation of the parish, in a regular rotation of preaching and presiding on Sundays and at midweek services.

Holy Trinity Episcopal Church is a welcoming, inquisitive and faithful Christian community that serves Clemson and many surrounding communities in Upstate South Carolina. We are part of the Diocese of Upper South Carolina. We are a vibrant and outwardly-focused congregation composed of a variety of generations, professions, and life experiences. We are located right in the middle of the city of Clemson, directly across from Riggs Field and the Tennis Courts on the north edge of the Clemson University campus. Our history in Clemson dates back more than a hundred years, to the time when Holy Trinity was a mission of the much-older St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in nearby Pendleton. The city of Clemson is a “university town,” and Holy Trinity has strong ties to both the community and the University.

Indicative of the latter, Holy Trinity sponsors Canterbury of Clemson, a welcoming fellowship of Clemson University students dedicated to faith building, exploring, and celebrating with food and music. A close-knit group of students from various studies that love to worship together and have fun, the students meet weekly for a meal prepared by parishioners of Holy Trinity and either a program or Eucharist. The group participates in diocesan events, such as Vocare, as well as their own faith and fellowship activities, including day-trips, movie nights, weekly coffee and Bible studies on campus, and more. Nurturing this Canterbury community and presenting the love of Christ visibly on campus and in other student-focused spaces are primary responsibilities of this position.
