Description of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church
At St. Matthew’s, our motto is “It’s the people!” St. Matthew’s is a welcoming, diverse church family seeking to live out our faith within the community. We are a growing parish in Snellville, Georgia and in the Diocese of Atlanta. Our average Sunday attendance is 225 active worshipers, who enjoy partnering with one another in fellowship and in ministry.
As the Assistant Rector, you will collaborate with other staff members (rector, music director, registrar, and parish administrator) and lay leaders to help the ministries flourish. While you will be encouraged to participate in all aspects of the life of the parish, your primary focus will be to develop and grow youth, young families, and children’s ministries.
We are seeking a dynamic, open minded, and energetic individual who is innovative in their ideas and development of programs. Your ability to connect, celebrate and embrace diversity, as well as communicate across generations will endear you to our parishioners.
As an Assistant Rector, your responsibilities will consist of:
• Developing a cohesive plan for Christian education, outreach, and mission for youth, young families, and children by mentoring and empowering lay leaders
• Participating in preaching and liturgical duties
• Providing pastoral care to a diverse and multi-generational parish
• Engaging in outreach and inreach ministries
