Job Description
Our search for a priest to lead Grace Episcopal Church marks a new and promising chapter in the life of our parish. We began the call process by composing a prayer for our church whose immediate focus is God’s “renewing Love,” and we have prayed to be guided by that Love toward the renewal of the spiritual life of our members.

Through deep reflection and discernment across the constituencies of the parish, we have identified four areas of priestly and pastoral ministry that speak most clearly to our hopes for the future:

We seek a priest who will tend to the pastoral needs of our congregation with love, care, and
understanding.
We long to hear the Word of God spoken through both homily and liturgy, providing our members with the spiritual sustenance they need to live their lives
day-to-day.
We pray for a priest who will lift the hearts and minds of our congregation through Christian
education bringing our members into a closer relationship with God through a deep understanding of Scripture and the fundamentals of Christian faith.
Finally, we seek the prudence and wisdom of a pastor who can help steer our parish to Christ-centered responses to the inevitable challenges of living in today’s world.
