Job Description
Trinity Episcopal Church, Fort Worth, in the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, is a healthy, growing parish bordering a university campus, with great enthusiasm for worship and ministry. We seek a full-time Associate Rector to work with a supportive team, which includes Rector, staff, and volunteers. The Associate Rector will build and oversee programs in newcomer welcome, discipleship faith formation, community missional relationship building, pastoral partnerships, and share in clergy and sacramental leadership of the parish.

Details of this call include:

  • Assist the Rector, staff, and worship planning group to create and offer “beautiful worship.” The Associate Rector will regularly preach or preside at our services. On Sundays, we have a Rite I spoken Eucharist, a Rite II Choral Eucharist, and an EOW “Folk Mass” (with the help of our Common Folk Band). The Associate Rector will also help lead a weekly online Evening Prayer service and coordinate a weekly Eucharist in conjunction with Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University.
  • Create and grow our parish opportunities and relationships related to discipleship and adult faith formation. The Associate Rector will teach, coordinate, coach, encourage, and cheer on our adult parishioners in their faith development, helping them to find their ministries and gifts. (Trinity currently engages in EfM, Women’s and Men’s Bible Studies, a Contemplative Prayer Group, a rotating-themed Adult Faith Discussion Forum, and periodic topical forums). The Associate Rector will also help with Vestry and other leadership as we continue to focus on newcomer welcoming and engagement—including building/rebuilding a Confirmation/New Membership program for the parish.
  • Enhance and build on pastoral relationships and care in the congregation. The Associate Rector will be the main coordinator of pastoral care, building on our Lay Eucharistic Visitor program, and enhancing lay pastoral care and connection opportunities with those who are homebound.
  • Continue to integrate Trinity into the wider community. Help the parish improve initiatives creating and growing community missional relationship. Be connected to Fort Worth, the Diocese of Texas, and to the Episcopal Church.
  • Be part of the excited team of Rector, engaged and creative staff, innovative and hopeful vestry, (and, of course, the Holy Spirit) to help make Trinity Episcopal Church the bustling, love-filled, parish God calls us to be. We invite new ideas, initiatives, and energy!
