Good Sam is a ‘corporate size’ church with three Sunday services – Rite I, Rite II and a Contemporary service. We seek to build strong community within the church, as we worship together, are transformed by Christ to better love our neighbors, and grow in the knowledge of God. We value our small groups, Bible study groups and Sunday School classes. The church is committed to being a transformative presence in our community. We have evangelistic programs such as Alpha, our Food Closet ministry and many other partnerships with local, national and international missions groups. Additionally, when not in a pandemic we offer prayer with laying on of hands by lay prayer teams at Sunday services and quarterly invite every parishioner to receive healing prayer at Sunday Services immediately following receiving communion.
The person we are looking for:
- Has a high view of scripture and of the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.
- Has a heart for pastoral care and outreach.
- Able to enable and see lay people grow in spiritual maturity, in gifting and in ministry capacity.
- Is comfortable connecting with a wide diversity of people.
- We would prefer to balance the gender of our clergy team – both full time clergy are men.
Along with sharing in regular clergy responsibilities, we are looking for someone who will help us connect members within the life of the church. You will have a concern for the health of our congregation and the processes by which people integrate into the life of the parish and grow in service, faith and love. You will have a particular responsibility for pastoral care within our parish. An interest in children and youth ministry would be welcome, but not required.
We are open to a new or a seasoned priest. The particular division of responsibilities with which you will help shape our culture and fulfil the mission described here are flexible and will depend on your skills and sense of vocation.
Email your resume or CDO form or both along with a cover email explaining why you feel that God may be calling you to serve at the Church of the Good Samaritan. Please also attach a sermon link we can listen to via email.
