Christ Episcopal Church, Charlotte, NC
Associate Rector for Young Adult and Family Ministry

Christ Church is seeking a creative, grounded priest to join a gifted, collegial clergy team in the shared work of preaching, teaching, pastoral care and programmatic leadership. We are a very large congregation of 5,600 engaged parishioners who are committed to our mission to love God, care for each other, and serve the world. This unique role is one of vision, support and empowerment.

In addition to worship leadership and other important clergy roles, our new Associate Rector will be an inclusive visionary who can engage, equip, and empower young adults and families while working with a team of outstanding professionals in Children, Youth and Family Ministry. Unlike similar positions in smaller churches where the priest functions without a staff, in this role, the priest serves as a convener with staff and lay leaders and provides vision and pastoral support to a deeply experienced six-member team with over 50 years of combined experience in ministry.

We envision dynamic worship opportunities for all ages, innovative spiritual practices that can occur at home, and unique experiences that are transformative and intergenerational. We envision programs that fully utilize website, mobile applications, and other digital means to meet our families where they are when they are not in church. We hope that what our associate creates here will become a model and an inspiration to the wider Church of what it means to form parents, youth, and children to be 21st century Christians. This role also includes acting as chaplain to Christ Church Kindergarten (CCK), a preschool with over 50 teachers and 200 students.
