St. Andrew’s, Portland seeks part-time Vicar

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 neysae@diocese-oregon.org.

Ascension Episcopal Parish, Portland seeks part-time Rector

Ascension Episcopal Church is a warm and friendly community gathered for traditional worship. We welcome all to join us to seek Christ’s presence in our beautiful, intimate space. 

Ascension is a parish of about 60 households worshiping in a small 1889 chapel in Portland Heights.  We are traditional but far from old-fashioned, using Rite I liturgy for all our services and nurturing a warm and friendly community where all are welcome.  We are looking for a 1/3 time rector to pastor our 60 households and lead us into the future. 

Sunday worship, preaching, and Eucharist are the cornerstone of our life together.  We are seeking a rector who will serve as principal preacher and celebrant for Sunday Eucharist at 8 AM and 10 AM, and at special services such as Ash Wednesday and Holy Week services. Someone who is fluent in the traditional language, liturgy, and music would be a gift to us. 

Because of our small size, most members according to their gifts have one or more active ministries in our operations, programs, and missions. Each person is essential to the life of the parish.  Our priest should be a good communicator, outgoing and friendly, with a warm and open style for parishioners and newcomers alike.   Because we have long had a part-time and bi-vocational priest as well as a parish administrator, we have highly functional lay-led day-to-day ministries.  Our priest should be able capably both to inspire and to guide lay leadership within the church, and to help newcomers find opportunities for service.  

Our rector should gently guide a vision for the future.  One concern will be, as with any parish, growth (or re-growth.)  Prior to the pandemic, our parish was seeing steady growth, due to “strong fundamentals:” effective preaching of the gospel, a warm and caring community, regular social events, beautiful music, committed liturgy, and a successful Christian education program for children.   Our new rector will need to help us determine how we can build on this foundation regardless of where the pandemic takes us.    A second special effort will be pulling together our variety of different outreach efforts into a more coordinated whole.  

The successful candidate will be a strong preacher and celebrant of traditional liturgy, a warm, sensitive, and outgoing pastor, and a capable inspiration to lay ministry.
