St. Edward’s Episcopal Church

Job Description
First and foremost, we are seeking a spiritual leader. While all the programs and ministries are important, they are only meaningful if pursued in the context of love, prayer, compassion, fellowship and an understanding of our call to be brothers and sisters in Christ. We seek a rector who can help us keep our eyes on the goal, lead us in Christ’s path and keep our hearts open.

In late 2018, a search committee was seated. Our first task was to take the measure of our congregation and try to identify issues that will affect our future as a community of faith. Toward that end we conducted a parish-wide survey, a summary of which is attached here, along with a compendium of the actual data: https://sainteds.org/rector-search

Those findings then served as the point of departure for a series of parish discussions, some looking at the congregation at large, others at individual ministries. The response of the congregation has been most encouraging. Of an estimated 160 parishioners, 140 completed the survey. Dozens participated in the follow-up conversations. Their responses were thoughtful, honest and enthusiastic. We are eager and confident as we look ahead.
