Job Description
Saint Matthew’s Episcopal Church and School are ready for growth. Constructed in 2015, our Church, Parish Hall and School are state of the art providing room to grow. We are seeking a Rector who will make connections with the Parishioners, School and wider community to expand our congregation. We pray for a Pastor with a strong interest in making scripture based sermons relatable to our everyday lives, who can be a dynamic leader of multigenerational worship services, and who will bring the word of God to our School students and local community.

St. Matthew’s is located in Houma, Louisiana, the economic center of Terrebonne Parish. Terrebonne means “Good Earth”. Matthew 13:23 says “As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.” We strive to sow seeds of faith through our outreach programs, the largest of which is our School that hosts grades PreK 3 through 7th grade.

If you are ready to sow seeds of faith into future generations while connecting with the faithful Parishioners of St. Matthew’s, and to reach out to our wider community for growth, then we are ready to welcome you home.  We pray for you on your discernment journey.
