We seek a strong spiritual leader to guide us in living into our full potential! Through wisdom and experience, team building and servant leadership, our next Rector will inspire us through Christ-centered worship, insightful theology, education, and outreach ministry, helping us build on our considerable strengths to serve one another, our community and the world. Our new Rector will be a good communicator – who listens, understands and counsels, as we recognize this has an indirect benefit to the perceived quality of care within the congregation.
The Rector we seek will be a thoughtful preacher who will touch our hearts, passionate in liturgy and Christian formation, able to engage long-time Episcopalians as well as newcomers to our denomination. Our next Rector will be actively involved in the local community, representing Trinity Church and the wider Episcopal church, being respectful of differing opinions and lifestyles in our East Texas environment. He or she will be approachable, amenable to other’s ideas, and collaborative with a result-driven management style accompanied by a good sense of humor.
Perhaps, most importantly, the Rector we seek will be an effective and compassionate motivator who will assist us in creating an environment where Christian love and care flow freely through each of us, and an energetic partner with the proven ability to work with all of us to proclaim the Gospel to a hurting world.
