Job Description
“The Episcopal Church Welcomes You.” This statement is written on Episcopal signs and churches throughout the United States, and it is deeply true of us at The Memorial Church of the Prince of Peace. We welcome all people as unique creations of God, to fully participate in all levels in our common life and worship. There are over 200 active members, and our average Sunday attendance of 60 is the force behind the many ministry and outreach programs we support with our time, talent, and funding.

While we have a deep and valued commitment to maintaining the outreach and ministries we are currently supporting, there is a budding energy to do more and commit ourselves to follow God’s call…” use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace and its various forms”.

Financially, we are a strong and stable church, carrying no debt and with the ability to increase our five-million-dollar endowment. We are also optimistic that as a nation we will shake off the long-running effects of COVID as our active membership continues to grow and return to previous membership levels.

After rigorous internal reflection on what we want our parish to look like in the next five years, three words stood out: Growing, Welcoming and Diverse. What we are looking for in our next leader to guide us and help us grow to become that church in three words is, pastoral, compassionate, friendly (a close 4th was humor!). We are ready to begin the journey to answer that call.
