St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, seeks an experienced Episcopal Priest to partner with them as their next Rector. This rector will be a dynamic leader, effective administrator and skilled pastor to a transitional sized parish in Tennessee’s unique “secret city.”
Initially established to support the World War II Manhattan Project, Oak Ridge continues to be Tennessee’s “innovation valley,” home to a large number of jobs in the science and tech sector that attract both young adults and highly educated individuals in the fields of science and research. In addition, Oak Ridge is located within a stunningly beautiful, four-season context and known for world-class outdoor recreation in mountain-biking and rowing in a city that has a 19% lower cost of living than the national average.
Within this context, St. Stephen’s is an engaged congregation that loves to learn and to serve. Their next pastor will be able to balance their deep desire for spiritual growth and worship with their compassionate heart for outreach ministries, help them to achieve their goals of reaching out to new populations within their diverse city, and partner with them in addressing the challenges they face for the future.
