We at Holy Comforter live out our mission and vision by emulating the life and example of Jesus Christ within and beyond our parish walls. We are seeking someone to join our collaborative staff of nine that oversees a powerfully and wonderfully lay-involved parish in ministries that celebrate our diverse gifts.

We are a joyful people that aspire to model our individual and parish life on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.

The ability to lead worship and communicate in Spanish is a desired skill in our new Associate Rector. Holy Comforter is located two miles south of the center of a fast growing and exciting city with many additional opportunities for ministry. Holy Comforter is searching not so much for a saint of the John or Paul or Augustine variety; but rather for a Mark, Mary Magdalen, Bartholomew, Julian, Stephen, or Clare. If you find yourself in this description, we would enjoy hearing from you.
