Job Description
St. Bartholomew’s is a community of people being formed into the likeness of Jesus and moving toward God, the poor, and the world. As a church, we exist for the flourishing of others. Our parishioners come from all around Nashville for our beautiful liturgy and music, robust formation offerings, warm hospitality, and the centrality of prayer in our life together. Additionally, a group of South Sudanese call St. B’s home and worship in Dinka, their native language. Our combined ASA is 325 people.

As we emerge from the COVID pandemic, we remain strongly connected through our interactions and our desire to be transformed by God’s grace. At our heart, we are a relational church. We come from numerous denominational backgrounds and have theologically diverse views. We acknowledge the natural tension inherent in this fact. Yet faith in Jesus is what holds this community together.

Our priorities for the future include building the community of Christ, being a prayerful refuge, and loving others as ourselves.

We seek a rector who:

  • Loves Jesus and teaches through sermons that connect us to God’s love
  • Values our diverse and collaborative culture
  • Has strong relational and administrative skills
  • Has skills and desire to foster a culture of generous giving
  • Helps us engage in social justice as an outgrowth of our faith
  • Helps us to identify and use our spiritual gifts

St. Bartholomew’s is located in a quiet neighborhood in an excellent school district just a short drive from downtown Nashville. Besides a sanctuary and parish hall building, our campus includes a walking path and a four-bedroom rectory (2,800 square feet total).
