Job Description
We’ve been located on the same residential street in Bexley, Ohio since 1922, a suburb of Columbus, Ohio. We have deep roots in Bexley and the City of Columbus. Members and visitors both join us from surrounding areas. We love our worship which is deeply rooted in the Book of Common Prayer. Our worship ranges from the meditative to the larger services including a collaborative Easter Vigil with 3 other Episcopal churches. St. Albans has a tradition of life long Christian formation for children, youth, and adults including Sunday School, a variety of Adult Formation offerings, Book Club, seasonal presentations and a film series. We fulfill our mission by our involvement in both outreach and financial support of various community organizations. Our pastoral care ministry serves members who are unable to attend regular worship and community members in acute financial or social service need.

We face many of the same challenges of mainline churches in contemporary culture. Our membership, giving, and attendance have lagged in recent years. In addition, we have experienced multiple changes in clergy leadership during the past decade.

While we have our challenges, we also have many strengths. We offer a variety of programs and there is a solid core of members who respond. We recognize the changes affecting the Church. With the enthusiastic and energetic support of a compassionate and nurturing rector, who communicates with an open heart, we believe we can grow through our challenges and provide a vibrant place of worship and fellowship in our community.
