At 102 years young, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Kingsport, TN is a vibrant, pastoral-sized congregation with a day school and kindergarten in search of a dynamic, compassionate, spirit-filled priest to be their next rector.
With a track record of engaged and committed lay leadership, St. Paul’s is looking for a visionary coach and inspirational cheerleader to partner with them in continuing a strong missional presence in Kingsport while strengthening ties both with their day school and the unified Episcopal presence across three Episcopal Churches in Kingsport.
The fifth fastest growing city in Tennessee, Kingsport is a town of just under 50,000 people in the beautiful tri-cities region of upper East Tennessee, known both for its musical heritage and stunning natural beauty. The local public high school is widely touted for both its strong music education program as well as STEM education and has been named in the top 5% of all high schools in America by US News & World Report.
This is a creative, caring parish in a beautiful town—a wonderful spot to open the next chapter of one’s ministry career.
