Transitional Deacon or Priest August 7, 2019 If you would like an opportunity to serve a small, vibrant congregation in the beautiful Northwoods of Wisconsin, the historic Church of the Ascension, Hayward, Wisconsin has a place for you. The congregation gathers 30 to 60 strong (depending on the season) every Sunday. Music is important and well supported with piano. A Rectory is part of the moderate financial package that includes mileage, insurance, pension, and vacation. Hayward is the center for recreational activities that draws visitors from across the country. Fishing, hunting, boating, skiing and the beauty of hardwood forests, rivers, and lakes provide unlimited opportunities for family togetherness and adventure. Hayward is the home of the world-famous Birkebeiner, a mid-winter event that draws thousands from across the United States and Europe and beyond. Good food, generous people, and a welcome to Scandinavian culture are in abundance. The Church of the Ascension is a congregation open to all regardless of race, ethnicity or life style. If this ministry calls to your soul, please contact Rick Herdrich, Search Chair, at: email@example.com or 970-290-2447.
