Job Description
We seek a full-time rector who will lead our inclusive parish in the next phase of our spiritual growth as individuals and as a faith community. As an open congregation that worships in the Anglo-Catholic manner with a strong music tradition, Bethesda Episcopal Church stands in communion with the National Episcopal Church. We seek a new rector with dynamic preaching, teaching, and pastoral care skills, an ability to navigate our parish’s differences with the Albany Diocese, and a strong commitment to growing our parish by attracting young adults and children to worship with us as we proceed “Toward a 3rd Century.” We have a brand-new Rectory and are in the process of building a new parish house and community center that will serve specific needs in our community, including housing and helping the homeless. In addition, we continue our historic mission serving the elderly. 

Organized in 1830, Bethesda is located in the heart of Saratoga Springs, NY, a thriving small city. With a population of about 28,000, Saratoga Springs is located 30 miles north of the New York State Capital, Albany, NY, and is centrally located between Boston, New York City, and Montreal, Canada. New York’s capital region, which encompasses Albany, Troy, and Schenectady as well as Saratoga Springs, is lively and energetic, balancing its historic roots with a vibrant metropolitan atmosphere. Part of the attraction of Saratoga Spring is its ability to offer residents and visitors alike world-class cultural opportunities in a community nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack mountains with its superb outdoor recreational opportunities.
