Job Description
We are looking for a priest skilled congregation development and excited about strengthening congregations numerically, spiritually and in missional leadership. In the Diocese of Rochester, we are intentional about formation, choosing to focus our efforts in the areas of relationship, stewardship, and leadership, with the blessed hope of becoming the beloved community Jesus prayed for.
St. Thomas’ is part of the Episcopal branch of The Jesus Movement— an ongoing community of people who center their lives on Jesus and following him into loving, liberating and life-giving relationship with God, each other and creation.

Together, we follow Jesus as we love God with our whole heart, soul and mind and love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40), and restore each other and all of creation to unity with God in Christ (Book of Common Prayer, p. 855).

Jesus launched this movement when he welcomed the first disciples to follow his loving, liberating, life-giving Way. Today, we participate in his movement with our whole lives: our prayer, worship, teaching, preaching, gathering, healing, action, family, work, play and rest.

In all things, we seek to be loving, liberating and life-giving—just like the God who formed all things in love; liberates us all from prisons of mind, body and spirit; and gives life so we can participate in the resurrection and healing of God’s world.

We invite you to join The Jesus Movement at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church.
