Through a faithful season of discernment, Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Webster Groves, MO, seeks a new rector who is…

A preacher who inspires and motivates: Emmanuel is a church whose strength lies in cultivating relationships and serving the community. We seek a rector who can inspire, educate, and motivate us in our daily life and work.

A visionary and inclusive leader: Emmanuel is celebrating the 150th anniversary of a rich history doing God’s work in the community. Parishioners, many of whom are part of inter-generational families or lifelong members, are committed to keeping Emmanuel vibrant and relevant in the community for ages to come. The church seeks a rector who will share in this vision and help Emmanuel embrace a more diverse demographic, including singles and families, and incorporate newcomers in ministry.

An authentic and caring leader: Emmanuel’s strength is in its strong relationships as expressed through fellowship, parish events, outreach, service, and educational programs for parishioners of all ages. Parishioners “exchange the peace” with exuberance and hold hands during the Lord’s Prayer as a sign of connection with God through each other. We seek a rector who will share fully and enthusiastically in life at Emmanuel. We invite our new rector to become a part of the Emmanuel family.

A faithful shepherd: Emmanuel is strongly spiritual, expressed most generously through fellowship, pastoral care, and service. We seek a rector who can thoughtfully lead us in deeper exploration of the Bible, connecting scripture to contemporary life with passion, humor, and grace.
