Job Description
We seek a full time Rector who will use patience, humor and love to guide us to grow Grace Church numerically, spiritually and in missional leadership and deepen our faith in Christ. We seek a leader who is confident in spirituality, deep in wisdom, enthusiastic about trying new ideas, respectful of comfortable traditions. We are in need of a leader who is unafraid to lead, but also willing to delegate and share decision-making when appropriate. We would enjoy well prepared sermons that address modern issues through scripture.

The small town of Merchantville (approximately 3700 residents) invites the Rector to be a strong presence of the community, engaging in neighborhood and community events, living in town or neighboring community. Networking with the other churches in town and fellowship is strongly recommended.

We currently have outreach and in-reach ministries at Grace Church, including South Jersey Food Bank, Thrift Shoppe, St. Paul’s Camden breakfast program, Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, youth and adult choirs, Bible study programs, Lay Eucharistic Ministries, Altar Guild, and Sunday coffee hours. Our new Rector will support these ministries and encourage us to undertake others.

We are searching for a Rector who will devote time to our young people of all ages. Our Rector will embrace the diverse needs of our congregation and continue to help us attract new families and members through an inviting ministry.
