St. Francis of Assisi Church is a welcoming, caring and friendly community full of energy for ministry. We are looking for a full-time rector to share our faith journey and lead our worship in Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley. Our new rector will value deep and contagious spirituality, love the liturgy, and reveal a deeper understanding of God’s Word through preaching. They will also be accepting of all people, value shared leadership, listen actively, and communicate effectively.
The majority of our congregation are involved in our many and varied ministries. We devote our time, talent and treasure to outreach locally and in the world community, and we take care of each other. We find wisdom and fellowship in worship and attend regularly on Sundays and Wednesdays. Our worship space and memorial gardens reflect the natural beauty that surrounds us in our country setting, only 30 minutes from Portland. If you feel called to serve a community that works to better know, serve and worship Christ, please apply by sending a cover letter, resume and OTM Portfolio to the Rev. Canon Neysa Ellgren Shepley at firstname.lastname@example.org. To learn more about us please visit www.stfranciswilsonville.org where our parish profile is also available.
