Full-Time Rector – St. Barnabas, McMinnville

Full-Time Rector – St. Barnabas, McMinnville

At St. Barnabas in McMinnville we seek a full-time rector to walk with us, guide us, help us realize our untapped potential, grow and strengthen areas we as a congregation do well, and work with us to identify new opportunities to do God’s work in our church and community. 

Like many churches, we have been affected by Covid in myriad ways. These challenges have brought us imagination, creativity and courage to try new ideas in ways we could not have imagined. As we move forward, we hope to retain this new concept of what being a church in the 21st Century means, adapt to coming changes, and work to maintain a thriving church. We are looking for someone who not only sees the possibilities for St. Barnabas but embraces them and has the faith, skills and personality to lead us into the yet unknown future. 

Since 2017, the Rector has also served as Executive Director of our Soup Kitchen. This position calls for the support and guidance of the Operations Manager, volunteers and guests, as well as representation in the greater community. As Executive Director, the Rector sits on the Soup Kitchen Board, having full voice and vote.

If, after prayerful thought and consideration, you feel the call to join us on our journey, to worship with us, to help us identify new ways to grow and reach the broader community, sharing God’s love for all, we invite you to submit a cover letter of interest, your OTM profile, and your current resume to our Missioner for Thriving Congregations, The Rev. Chris Craun at chrisc@diocese-oregon.org 

We will accept applications until September 15.
