Job Description
We want our new rector to exercise strong leadership, spiritual care, and outreach, with financial skills helping the congregation develop a robust and healthy vision for the future. We acknowledge that this goal faces many headwinds, including an ever-increasing number of people identifying as “The Nones”. In that context, we stand ready to work with a new leader to build upon our strengths to attract people disaffected from traditional religion. We can offer our beautiful space and services, an active volunteer base, a strong musical program, and a desire to do God’s work in the wider world. We are an inclusive congregation, where all are welcome. We believe we have much to offer, we just need help uncovering our “hidden pearls.”
