||Grace Church is seeking a full-time rector who will help us build on a meaningful tradition of worship, ministry, and fellowship in our community. Grace’s mission is to be a community of faith living out our baptismal vows: to embody the compassion and mercy of Christ; to be fully welcoming and inclusive; to be a community characterized by acceptance, generosity, peace, and reconciliation; and to be witnesses in word and action to God’s abundant and indiscriminate love and to Christ’s transformative power. Together, we strive to continually be transformed into disciples following in the path of Jesus and doing God’s work in the world.
Hopkinsville is Kentucky’s 10th largest city, and the state’s most diverse outside of Louisville. “Hoptown” is a friendly community located in southwestern Kentucky along the Tennessee border with a great mix of “rural charm, notable architecture, and urban conveniences.” The very affordable cost of living combined with a short drive to both Nashville (about an hour) and the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area (30 minutes) makes both work and play easily accessible to our community.
