Bethesda Episcopal Church, organized in 1830 and located in the heart of Saratoga Springs, NY, is seeking a full time Rector to serve a parish of 450 members with an Average Sunday Attendance of 161 comprised of mostly 55+adults. We are a congregation who worship in the Anglo-Catholic manner and are committed to serving our community’s homeless, the less fortunate and the elderly.
Saratoga Springs, a dynamic growth city with a population of about 28,000, is 30 miles north of the New York State Capital, Albany, NY, and is centrally located between New York City and Montreal, Canada. We have a brand new Rectory and are in the process of building a new parish hall and community center adjacent to our historic church.
Our ideal candidate is an experienced Ordained Episcopal Priest of a Church similar in size to ours. He, or she, is a high energy person who displays enthusiastic preaching, teaching and pastoral care skills and is willing to make a strong commitment to growing our church by attracting young adults and children to worship with us as we proceed “Toward a 3rd Century.”
