Job Description
St. John the Evangelist is a beautiful church steeped in the history of our Founding Fathers. St. John’s was founded by Aaron Chew in 1789 and supported by George Washington among others. We are a family oriented congregation and welcome all into our fold. We would welcome a candidate skilled in relating holy scripture to contemporary life, and who can bring interpersonal skills, love of children, care for the elderly and a deep faith to share with us. We are in need of someone with good business acumen, who could help strengthen us in Stewardship and Discipleship. Our music program is important to us, and it is essential that our candidate recognize the importance of integrating music into the service. We have a strong music program and adult choir. Our children’s choir participates during special events and services. Our church school is well attended and our Holy Communion program has been adopted by other parishes and is recognized by the Diocese.
We would also appreciate a Rector who will partake in our fellowship activities. We look forward to working with an enthusiastic Rector who will join our family and help us continue to grow in God’s vision for St. John’s.
