Job Description

Christ Episcopal Church, located in Springfield, Missouri, calls for an experienced and professional Interim Rector to lead the church during its search for a permanent rector.

We anticipate this will be a two or three-year process. Our previous Rector retired on September 1 after twenty-six years in our parish. Christ Episcopal Church is a cardinal parish and was founded in 1859.

The Interim Rector will be supported by eight lay members of the staff, an active and dedicated vestry consisting of 12 members, and many members dedicated to outreach, ministry, and worship. We have two worship services on Sunday and a short evening service on Thursday. We have a wonderful congregation that is engaged, supportive, and welcoming. We are seeking an experienced Interim Rector who will help lead us through this transition process and help us plan moving forward. The right Interim Rector would be someone who places a high value on pastoral care, compassion, and listening. Excellence in teaching and preaching, as well as experience in church finances and human resources, are a must. Christ Church offers competitive pay and benefits in a low cost of living area.

If you are interested in applying, please send a cover letter, resume, and current Office for Transition Ministry portfolio to our Sr. Warden, Mary Chiles by email.
