Job Description
St. Stephen’s is a vibrant, loving parish whose core values include a welcoming environment, inclusivity, as well as concern for others. Our strongest desire is to deepen our faith—both as individuals and as a congregation—and to share that faith with the community and the world through acts of love and service.

We are a residential parish located in a university town in an economically stable community. Our parishioners come from diverse denominational and doctrinal backgrounds, and we greatly treasure that diversity. We welcome all worshipers, from whatever tradition and wherever they are in their faith journey, and we strive to do so without prejudice.

We seek one who will guide us in our continuing journey of formation, discipleship, and search for spiritual growth and who will challenge us to use our talents to achieve the goals expressed by the parish:

  • To promote and encourage church growth and development
  • To encourage a deeper relationship with God through preaching, teaching, and liturgy
  • To develop and support Christian education and formation
  • To build a strong stewardship program that focuses on the spiritual gifts of the parish
