Job Description
“All are welcome” at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit. Since our humble beginnings in 1974, ECOHS has cherished the call to accept and love all as Christ loves us. We are a warm and friendly congregation united by our spiritual communion and faith. We also value fellowship with others as demonstrated by our numerous breakfasts, picnics, dinners, receptions, and family gatherings throughout the year.

As attested in our most recent parish profile, we at ECOHS are good at promoting open fellowship, maintaining a welcoming atmosphere, and nurturing individual spiritual journeys. Our parishioners say they attend ECOHS mainly because of these strengths. Looking to the future, we know we want to grow our congregation and attract more families and individuals within our community. We also know that with change come challenges. To meet these challenges, we seek our next rector, who through faith, community and adherence to the many values unique to our parish will lead ECOHS into a bright future spreading the Good News of God’s Love.

Our bishop has made diversifying our diocese a priority through dismantling racism workshops and discussions led by clergy. We would like our next rector to join us as we grow in these areas.

Our parish survey revealed that across all age groups, our top priorities in our search for our next rector are:

  1.  The capacity to inspire and connect people to God’s word through their ability to preach. Someone who will relate to us in their understanding of the struggles that Christians face in everyday life, and inspire us to love like Jesus.
  2.  To provide pastoral care by engaging people empathetically and caring for parishioners in times of need.
  3.  Strategically leading our church by casting a vision and leading us in realization of that vision.
