Job Description
Trinity Episcopal Church is a faithful community located in Northern New York, approximately 60 miles north of Syracuse. Trinity has a strong history in the community and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The music program is second to none in this region.

Our new rector will be supported by a dedicated, full-time staff of three. He or she will also work with the Vestry and Finance Committee in managing the blessings and challenges associated with an endowed parish. We look to our new rector to guide us in our various ministries and identify new ones that meet the needs of the congregation and the greater community. We are a congregation who listens to and supports those in need.

We wish to call a rector who will support the current congregation as well as look to a church of the future, not yet fully determined. Our new rector should also be one who understands the importance of and has the desire to become a visible presence in the greater community. Fort Drum military base is nearby, and our new rector has a great opportunity to further develop and lead the parish in strengthening our connection with that community.

The rector who thrives at Trinity is one who has the professional and personal qualities of a person whose heart is bound by God’s love, preaches His word, and appreciates traditional worship according to the 79 BCP and 82 Hymnal. It is important to this parish that our new rector administers with integrity, leads our parishioners into service, and values music and pastoral care.
