  • A priest who will attract young families into the congregation, finding ways for them to contribute to all aspects of parish life.
  • A leader who helps us expand our understanding what it means to be truly diverse and inclusive, reaching out to marginalized segments of our community and strengthening our long-held ties with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
  • An innovator who with lay leadership identifies new revenue streams to complement the annual giving of our faithful, generous parishioners.
  • A faithful servant of our baptismal promise to strive for justice and peace for all people by sustaining our commitment to both outreach and parish life.
  • A priest who is a comforting presence, an effective communicator, and a willing ally who, together with the Vestry and other church leadership, ensures that our mission is accomplished.
  • Above all else, St. Mark’s wants a priest who is friendly and approachable, and who is interested in taking this journey of faith together with us to the Glory of God.
