Job Description
St Stephen’s Church, Belvedere, is searching for an Episcopal Priest or Transitional Deacon to serve part-time on our clergy staff. The ideal candidate will help us grow our ministry to children, youth, and families. A staff of 6 oversees a vibrant ministry of worship, music, Christian education, community outreach, and pastoral care. The core of the parish consists of some 150 families, of which 120 are pledging households. Located in Belvedere, CA at 3 Bayview Avenue, our Church is a 1955 Brutalist Gothic landmark designed by Erwin Winkler, and our Parish House is stunning. Our location, architecture, history, and setting present extraordinary opportunities for growth in ministry. Our location also presents a challenge: recreational activities (sailing, soccer) for children and family have increasingly encroached upon formerly sacrosanct Sunday mornings.

Application Process
The Associate Rector will have a solid grounding in the treasures of broad-church Anglicanism and an ability to hold the center in a time of deep division in church and society. The Associate Rector will be able to write well, speak well in a big space, and share the Christian faith in ways that are intelligent and compelling to people who are cheerful, sophisticated, equally progressive and conservative, and skeptical of organized religion. An ability to collaborate productively, to think on one’s feet, to have fun working with a convivial staff, and to help us grow spiritually and in numbers is a must.

Compensation will be based on experience. A cover letter and curriculum vitae should be sent in pdf to the Rector c/o Elizabeth Gravely (elizabeth [@] stsstephenschurch.org) by March 25th, 2019.

The job posting is available here.
