Job Description
Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration is a pastoral sized congregation in a lively small rural Southern town surrounded by the southern Appalachian mountains. Transfiguration is looking for a full-time priest with these gifts and sensibilities:

… a shepherd as well as lead, assign responsibility and recognize the contributions of others as well as guide us to find our place in God’s world.
… one who understands that there are those of us who would like to be moved slowly into the first steps of change and very few who appreciate “change for change’s sake.”
… one who will equip us to think and see things from other perspectives, enabling us to hear God’s voice for us behind the words of the Bible and Prayer Book, as well as in everyday life.
… one who will live in our community and participate in the various aspects of our lives so that we may be nourished and supported in our ministries in the world.

We look forward to welcoming our next rector as the leader of our worship services, as the shepherd through the joys and challenges of our lives together, as our supporter as we grow in our own spiritual selves, as our pathfinder and cheerleader as we reach out to our community to offer aid and fellowship, as a guest at our tables when we celebrate, and as our friend to walk with us as we continue to move forward in the life of the Church of the Transfiguration.
