What do you want this person to do?
We are a flexible parish in Acworth, GA seeking an inspiring Rector to assist us in deepening our sense of connection to God and one another. Our future Rector will gain the opportunity to step into and lead a newly energized parish and to work in partnership with this body of believers to create the cornerstone of faith that our community needs and desires.

We have identified the following characteristics we would most like to see in a new rector:

  • Preaching –Capacity to inspire and connect people to God’s word
  • Strategic Leadership-Capacity to create a vision and lead the church toward realization of that vision
  • Pastoral Care- Capacity to engage people with empathy and care for persons in time of need
  • Change Management – Capacity to lead a church through a significant and necessary period of change.
  • Teaching/Training- Capacity to deepen understanding, form character, and equip members with new skills.

With God’s grace, during our time of transition, St. Teresa’s has become a more unified congregation. We are seeking a Rector who is comfortable in managing conflict and who will further assist in channeling our entrepreneurial gifts toward increasing the mission to the world we encounter.

St. Teresa’s uses Rite 2 and other Episcopal liturgical resources. Each service may have different levels of formal and less formal moments and its own flavor.

Our parish lies on fifteen acres in the suburban area of West Cobb Co. with exceptional schools.
