St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church
Job Location
Lisbon, ME
Job Description
St. Matthew’s is evangelical in all senses of the word. Its services begin with praise music, its theology is generally conservative, its welcome is warm and its people don’t understand why some Christians find it difficult to invite people to church. The congregation is small and dedicated, and full of capable, can-do people, many of whom are former Navy NCOs. It is a leader in local ecumenical ministry, especially the food bank. St. Matthew’s is committed to the Episcopal Church even though it sometimes experiences tension with the larger church. The Diocese of Maine similarly treasures St. Matthew’s as a faithful expression of a way of following Jesus that is different from many other congregations in the diocese, and will warmly embrace the priest called to serve St. Matthew’s.
