Job Description
St. Stephen’s is a progressive family-friendly church rooted in a middle-class neighborhood. As a Broad church, we are an inclusive church family, welcoming each person as a child of God. St. Stephen’s has a long tradition of serving others through interfaith ministry. We are integrated into our community, operating as a Community Supported Agriculture, CSA, site having served as a free summer lunch location, and having a history of neighborhood chicken BBQs from the time our parishioners moved uptown, as a mission church. We offer a Eucharist experience with choir and organ in an intimate medieval style church (circa 1947) reminiscent of those found in England. Our “new” church hall is just over a decade old and provides comfortable and spacious breakout rooms. See the link illustrating the addition We provide an approx. 2000 sq. ft. rectory which has been recently repainted and updated, welcoming a rector, spouse and up to a full family. Our new rector will enjoy walking to Upper Union St. for a cup of coffee or bite to eat at one of the local eateries, or may fancy seeing a Broadway production at Proctor’s, downtown (a few minutes away). Schenectady has evolved from its industrial past, to technology, hospitality and the arts. But like any city, there are challenges. St. Stephen’s turned the attention to our neighbors in need: our sacred space is forever part of this community.
