Ann Arbor, MI
Job Description
We seek a pastor who will provide leadership and inspiration to energize our spiritual life and social justice outreach, and provide and guide pastoral care. Candidates for our open position should be collaborative, empathetic, and a flexible partner and leader. They must have a passion for social and ecological justice, and enthusiasm for helping communicate our gifts and spirit to a wider community so that we may grow in service, and hopefully in numbers. Sharing or delegating worship-related duties within appropriate canonical limits is a must. St. Aidan’s values lay involvement and leadership in worship through reading, reflections, and music. We have a number of talented congregants who enjoy helping with the design, presentation, and execution of the service. We want to be involved and use our talents! We like sermons that challenge us and engaging in intellectual and spiritual discussions. A regular program of adult education and bible study is also important to us, and could be led by the priest themselves, or by lay leaders with guidance from our minister.

Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan’s many world-class programs, as well as Michigan Medicine, a large, multi-hospital medical system. St. Aidan’s is in a unique, wooded and hilly location adjacent to the University of Michigan’s North Campus and near the University’s Medical Campus. North Campus is home to U of M’s colleges and schools dedicated to engineering, music, theater, dance, art, and architecture. We are also located near a variety of public and county parks featuring everything from hilly trails for hiking and biking to the Huron River, a popular spot for human-powered water sports, fishing, and bird watching. The main university campus in downtown Ann Arbor, and a wealth of museums, restaurants, social, and cultural opportunities are a short drive or bus ride from St. Aidan’s. Summers in non-pandemic years are especially vibrant, with outdoor music, movies, art fairs, and sports taking place almost daily.
