What do you want this person to do?
St. David’s is a growing suburban congregation looking for a rector who is good with families with young children. The neighborhood is shifting from older adults to young families with nearby growth area. Host to over a dozen scout groups, this church is a great opportunity for someone who wants to grow a church (or rather, keep up with the natural growth already happening). Needs energy, ideas for stewardship (as usual, finances lags people growth), and leadership. Dedicated, talented laity with some racial diversity as well as good mix of ages and incomes. Lay leadership, diocesan mentoring program and supportive clergy colleagues make this a good position for someone seeking first rectorship. Doing expedited search because congregation has known that the PIC was leaving whenever his wife got a job so has done prep work before his recent departure.
