Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church is a small, warm mission parish in the heart of North Portland, close to the historic St John’s Bridge. Our unique campus has three separate buildings: our original building with the Hereford House Food Pantry in the lower level and a therapy group that rents the upper level, Rankin Hall, an old Portland branch library, and our primary church building.
We are looking for a Vicar who will work alongside us as we strive to live out our baptismal covenant in our congregation, our community, and the world. This priest will seek to know us as we work to welcome all inspired to join us. Many in our area are experiencing poverty, houselessness, racism, and environmental injustice. Our longtime pantry ministry is very important to our members and to the community. We look for a priest who will inspire us to take our faith into practice in the world.
We desire someone who will lead relevant weekly Eucharist services along with periodic study groups. We have elderly members in need of pastoral care as well as members seeking to be empowered to expand involvement and service in the community. This person will also need to have administrative skills to help us keep our volunteers and finances on track as we pursue a broad agenda.
This is a ½ time position. Please check out our Parish Profile .
To Apply, please send your resume, OTM Portfolio, and a cover letter to The Rev. Canon Neysa Ellgren Shepley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
