|Church of Our Saviour [COS] an Episcopal congregation in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, is seeking a full-time ministerial colleague for the parish’s rector. Applicants can be priests, deacons or members of laity, and will fulfill the function of their order within the congregation’s life. All applicants must have a solid background in congregational oversight, a working comprehension of the worship and pastoral life of an Episcopal parish, and, since most office work is accomplished electronically, an excellent command of business and communication software.
COS is a mid-sized congregation, but its life and ministries outstrip its size. It is a congregation moving into a deeper appreciation of mission and ministry in the 21st century, hence, the non-traditional title, chosen to represent a congregational leader who is engaged in nurturing the mission of the people who comprise the congregation. The Parish Life Director will work closely with the Rector to ensure that core areas of parish life are executed well and support both current members of the congregation and are attractive and welcoming to newcomers. The Parish Life Director will also work closely with lay leadership, who are vital to COS’s success in worship and programming.
The parish has divided its life into five ‘Mission Areas:’
The Parish Life Director will join the leadership team in ensuring that all five Mission Areas work well in the service of the parish, its members and the neighborhood it serves. At the same time, the Parish Life Director will have direct responsibility for two of the first three Mission Areas, depending on the specific gifts of the applicant. [the Rector will take responsibility for the third Mission Area.]
Hence, successful applicants will, prior to making an application to COS, discern which two of the three Mission Areas most align with their experience and professional acumen. The specific duties of the three Mission Areas are as follow:
Are One: Praising God
Area 2: Growing as Christians
Area 3: Serving Others
The position is full-time. Given the nature of ministry work, there will be evening and weekend commitments. Weekly presence on Sundays is not required, but some regular Sunday attendance will be necessary to supervise the Nursery, oversee Christian Formation volunteers and develop relationships with families.
Remuneration is consistent with the Diocesan expectations for full-time ministers, including pension and health care benefits.
