    Job Description

    We looking to call a new rector to our parish who earnestly embraces and lives into our vision and mission:

    • To spread the love and hope Jesus offers to all who yearn to be welcomed home to the family of God in worship and fellowship.
    • To help people find God’s love, grow their faith, discover their purpose and improve the lives of those in our church and community

    Our Parish is blest with the oldest continually occupied building in the city of Ogden, and while we are steeped in tradition and enjoy the rituals of Rite II every Sunday, we are also a group of people who adapt to our community and the changes in the society in which we live.

    The priest who answers the call to be our rector will lead us in outreach, spiritual and congregational growth; involve youth in worship and growth as well as drawing strength and support from the long-standing members of our very diverse community.  That person will take special joy in the two worshipping communities that form our single congregation, one Latino and speaking Spanish and the other more traditional English speakers.  While the former is a Mission within the Diocese and has its own Vicar and the latter is the position we seek to fill, the two have and must continue to share and grow in a spirit of congeniality and service to others.

    The successful candidate and new rector will be an experienced, authentic, caring pastor with a sense of humor; lead us in open communication, in community out-reach, and in spiritual and congregational growth.
