Job Description
The Blue Water Episcopal Covenant wants You!  This is an exciting venture involving individual yet complimentary Episcopal parishes:  Holy Family in St Clair MI (a beautiful small town located several blocks from the St Clair River) and Trinity in Lexington MI (a lovely tourist town located several blocks from Lake Huron).  These locations are only 45 miles apart from each other. This is an opportunity to participate in building a potential new model of the church of the future. This covenant is a different approach to the priesthood, one focused on sharing resources in mission and in ministry while redefining the role of the Rector.

We are looking to explore a shared ministry and assist us in transforming our parishes into a mission driven alliance dedicated to keeping the Holy Spirit alive.  As spiritual places dedicated to worshiping God, we honor Jesus, engage in our communities and welcome all who seek to know, love and serve God.  Blue Water Episcopal Covenant will be the first such affiliation in our Eastern Diocese, paving the way for other parishes by combining resources in our service to the Lord.

The Full Time Rector will provide services for both churches on alternating weeks and split time at both sites and in both communities.  The Vestries will be flexible to enable the priest to attend to pastoral emergencies and care as needed.  Together, the 2 churches will provide a full time compensation package, competitive in value & benefits.
