St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church of Milwaukie, located in the Portland metropolitan area, is seeking a full-time rector. Situated in Milwaukie’s historic downtown, we are a welcoming congregation that strives to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ through invitation, affirmation, worship, and service. We offer two worship services on Sundays: a Rite I spoken service at 8am and a 10am Rite II music service. We also have a lively Adult Forum between the two services.
St. John’s is a parish of caring and compassion, with a commitment to pastoral care. Our building hosts an early childhood learning center, Feed the Hungry, a non-profit organization that originated in our parish and serves a free meal on Sunday, and other activities that serve the community.
We are seeking a rector to join with us to realize our dreams to grow our parish: to increase the participation of more families, children, and youth, offer more activities, and facilitate more small groups. Our new rector should enable us to build on our existing strengths as we grow in other ways. We value tradition but are open to new ideas and leadership.
For more information, please contact the Rev. Canon Neysa Ellgren Shepley at 971-204-4103 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
