Job Description
St. Philip’s Episcopal Church is located in Brevard, North Carolina, a region of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Western North Carolina affectionately known as “land of waterfalls.” St. Philip’s is a community “rooted in God’s word and guided by Christ’s example” and committed to being “a loving, inclusive community committed to living out Christ’s commandments.” St. Philip’s goals for their next chapter include:

•Deepening our commitment to serving those inside and outside our church walls, we want to expand our fellowship to carry out God’s work. We’d like to attract more young people, recognizing most of our growth will likely continue to come from retirees moving to Brevard.
• Community outreach is a major emphasis at St. Philip’s and we are on the frontline serving those in need. We want to expand ministries that build relationships and provide direct services, not just funds, to those living on the margins and those broken by life’s circumstances.
• We want to develop the spiritual generosity of members to support the ministries and operations of St. Philip’s. As part of our faith journey, we also seek to be better stewards of God’s creation. This may call for a change in the way we teach and live stewardship in our parish.
• We seek to strengthen our spiritual vitality through more opportunities for Christian education and spiritual formation at every age and stage of life.
• We need to encourage members to discern their gifts for ministry and leadership. In addition, we seek to develop a process by which all are called and equipped to serve.

We seek a rector with a joyous, generous, and welcoming spirit. We are looking for a priest who will walk along with us as the Spirit leads. And we seek a rector who gladly supports the laity as they use their gifts. At St. Philip’s it is essential that the rector be able to connect with all ages, sexual preferences, races, ethnicities, faith traditions, etc.
