What do you want this person to do?
St. Mark’s Church is located in the heart of downtown in the beautiful city of Grand Rapids. Over the last 179 years, St. Mark’s has played an active role in the growth of the community and has valued a tradition of worship, music and fellowship in addition to community involvement and advancement.

St Mark’s is committed to social justice and takes seriously the commitment from its tagline to “welcome all.” The mission of this parish is: We are an inclusive community of faith, reflecting Christ’s love, ministering to all who hunger in body, mind and spirit.

Every Sunday, St Mark’s offers a breakfast for homeless neighbors, along with other programs that invite them into the church. They also have a formal arrangement to provide tutoring at a nearby school and have renewed their support to Heartside Ministries and other downtown agencies. St Mark’s became the first church in Grand Rapids to gain accreditation from Partners for a Racism-Free Community.

We believe that St. Mark’s can become a beacon in our downtown and to the greater Grand Rapids area. We seek a rector who will help us grow, develop our individual ministries, fulfill our strategic plan and embrace the mission and values of the people of this parish.
