Job Description
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Holy Spirit Episcopal Church, Dover/Sandpoint, Idaho. As a parish family, we are dedicated to growing together in fellowship and love, sharing the desire to maintain connection with our spiritual source. We pledge to support and nurture our new vicar and their family as we work together to share our Christian faith with one another and those in our community.

We would like to improve our efforts to inform the broader community about our worship and activities, and encourage participation in them. In other words, we would like to improve in becoming more visible in the community, and more successful at inviting newcomers to our church.  We feel we have a good deal to offer in terms of a home and family, especially to folks who are relocating here. We want to share with others how meaningful and enriching it is to belong to Holy Spirit Episcopal Church.

We are looking for someone to love us, teach us and share with us their experiential journey of walking closely with God, and by doing so, deepening our faith and furthering our spiritual growth.

We seek someone who:

  • Desires to spread the Gospel and follow Jesus’ teachings.
  • Will help us engage scripture through weekly bible study.
  • Will recruit and train Eucharistic Visitors for pastoral visits.
  • Will help us become more visible to the greater community and more welcoming to those re-locating here.
  • Is tolerant of diversity and unifying.
  • Appreciates north Idaho’s nature and beauty, and welcomes the opportunity to commune with it.

We are willing to consider both short-term and long-term candidates.
