Job Description
Do you want to get away from big city stress, live surrounded by natural beauty, find friendly people, and serve the spiritual needs of a parish eager for a new priest to help us grow and deepen our faith?  If so, please consider St. Andrew’s Church, in Aberdeen, Washington, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

We are a church small in numbers but large in spirit, with dedicated, supportive members who step up when needed.  As we continue recovering from the effects of the Covid Pandemic, we see members returning, as well as new faces at our services.  When we recently held a fund raising concert for the people of Ukraine, our sanctuary was filled with people from all over the community, giving generously while enjoying the fabulous music and dessert reception afterwards.  St. Andrew`s history goes back to the late 1800’s and has an important place in the area’s history. The past few years, however, have seen a decline in membership due to economic downturns, people moving out of the area, deaths of older members and Covid.  Now we are seeing signs of recovery.

We look for someone who is outgoing, energetic, and seeking to make a difference.  We like meaningful sermons that relate to everyday living. Our parish is strongly in the middle of a bell curve theologically.  Due to the current situation we now offer only a 9 a.m. service.  Previously we held two Sunday services as well as a Wednesday evening Eucharist.  If this part time position appeals to you, we can promise you a warm welcome. Please read our Parish Profile (available at standrewsgraysharbor.com) to learn more about our church and this opportunity.
