Job Description
Grace Episcopal Church seeks a rector to shepherd the parish as we strive to follow the Gospel imperative to love and serve Christ in all persons. Founded in 1855 and located just outside  Washington DC, Grace is a diverse, welcoming, Eucharistically-centered parish that deeply values the Episcopal liturgy. Sunday worship ranges from Rite II said services to “high-church” Rite I Choral Eucharists to our Spanish “La Gracia” service. Multiple opportunities for corporate worship occur during the week.

Beyond our walls, we aim to serve our neighbors, community and the wider church. Grace operates a vital food pantry, commissions youth and adults for regular mission trips to rebuild devastated communities throughout the country, and sponsors programming and outreach in our local community as well as Haiti and Tanzania. As a church community, we also value fellowship and fun. The vitality of the parish is apparent in the wide range of youth programming Grace offers, including the Journey to Adulthood program for middle and high-schoolers, robust Christian education for younger children, a boys and girls choir that follows the Royal School of Church Music curriculum, and a strong youth acolyte corps. We share our campus with Grace Episcopal School, an independent partner of the church that provides accredited PreK-Grade 5 education.

Grace seeks an inspirational, thought-provoking preacher with love for Episcopal liturgy, a pastor with a gift for building community, and a collaborative leader with strong staff-management skills. Salary and benefits are competitive and adhere to the Diocese of Virginia’s guidelines.
