Full-time Rector, St. Gabriel the Archangel, Portland

Full-time Rector, St. Gabriel the Archangel, Portland

St. Gabriel the Archangel Church is a congregation prepared for more! We are motivated to embody the deep and endless love Christ shows us. We honor our fellowship and work well together.

We strive to offer more to our church family and neighbors while being challenged with space constraints.

Our church was constructed in 1996 with a unique open and light-filled, multi-purpose sanctuary with exceptional acoustics that is often used for music venues. There is a small narthex and kitchen, several classrooms, a library, sacristy, and offices.  

Our location was a rural corner of Washington County. We have watched the surroundings grow with households due to our proximity to major employers such as Nike, Intel, Columbia Sportswear, and related businesses.

We desire a rector to lead us as we grow, giving pastoral care and delivering sermons that inspire and initiate conversation, learning, and a call to action. Other qualities include having a balance of trying new ideas while being well-grounded, being financially responsible, experienced in stewardship, and possessing the ability to dream of what might be.

Our Profile was influenced by the current issues we face in our community and country that touch our hearts. We need to reevaluate what is realistic in what we can and are capable of achieving as we emerge from this pandemic.

We are looking for a full-time rector to step forward and lead us into exciting changes, yet count our blessings and pass them on.
