Job Description
We are seeking an Episcopal priest, transitional deacon, or a soon-to-be transitional deacon who is excited to jump into the “deep end” of the parish ministry pool! As a member of Grace Church’s program ministry team, the Associate Rector will work closely with the Rector, the Director of Intergenerational Formation Ministries, the Director of Music Ministries, Head of School, Youth Mentor, other parish clergy, and lay leaders in an array of ministries. Together, they will continue the work of building and growing a vibrant and thriving Christian community that offers intergenerational experiences of worship, formation, fellowship, service, and justice work. The Associate Rector will be a highly relational person with initiative and a demonstrated ability to work well with people of all ages in an extremely diverse environment. Recruiting, training, and equipping others for ministry in God’s church and creation should be a source of deep joy for the Associate Rector.

The Associate Rector’s scheduled work week is five days, usually measured as ten units of mornings, afternoons, or evenings in various combinations reflecting the demands of this ministry and shall include Sunday activities. The Associate Rector is expected to preserve at least one continuous twenty-four period each week solely for personal use and to take all their leave annually. The Associate Rector should make family and friends a priority. Ministry is so much more fun when one is rested, relaxed, and well supported!
