INTRODUCTION

An inclusive parish with a gift for hospitality, Christ Church, Whitefish Bay is looking for an Associate Rector to work collaboratively with the rector to deepen the parish’s mission to the larger community and beyond. This is a multi-faceted associate position with opportunities for leadership development in many areas. Applicants should have an interest in creative, life-giving faith formation for children and young families, preaching, pastoral care, outreach and The rector is also excited to support the interests and learning goals of the associate to help her or him live more fully into their particular calling.

➢ Enhancing and Expanding Worship
The Associate Rector will share in preaching, celebrating, and liturgy design. We hope to begin an additional service (style yet to be determined), and the associate will have significant authority over this element of our worship life.

➢ Engaging the immediate neighborhood
In May 2017 we completed a $2.3m capital campaign to make our facility more hospitable and ADA accessible. We hope to become a neighborhood hub for a variety of programs to support spiritual, emotional and physical wellness. Examples of such programs might be: community forums to foster interfaith understanding; yoga classes and walking groups; workshops for spiritual practices. In early February, we opened our doors for a neighborhood prayer vigil for refugees (article here). The Associate Rector will work with a variety of people to develop a vision and strategy for more deeply engaging our neighborhood.

➢ Engaging the city and beyond
In 2010, we began a partnership with a Lutheran church in the inner-city of Milwaukee, but the parish needs help developing that relationship. The Associate Rector will help us to more creatively and consistently build friendships across divisions of race and class. Additionally, many of our families are looking for ways to teach their children about God’s justice and mercy. While we have made some progress in providing both teaching and outreach opportunities for children and parents, we would like an associate to help lead us deeper into God’s call to come alongside those who are most vulnerable.

➢ Nurturing children and youth in the faith
The Associate Rector will especially look to help incorporate families, children and youth deeper into the life of the parish. She or he will supervise the Children’s Ministry Leader and will take a more hands on role with the youth group. She or he will have authority for choosing and implementing formation components such as curricula and mission work. The rector is open to developing new and innovative approaches to pass on the faith.

➢ Sharing pastoral care
The rector will share pastoral care with the associate: visits to the home and hospital; ministering to those who are dying, preparing couples for marriage, and providing counseling to parishioners in crisis. As in other areas, the rector hopes for mutual learning, so that his ministry is made better by the associate’s ministry.

➢ Overseeing parish communications
The Associate Rector will supervise the Communications Leader and will be responsible for the vision and strategy for parish communications through all available channels: website, weekly parish email, social media and more.
