Our active congregation of Friends seeks a gifted part-time Associate Pastor to join our ministry team.  The Associate Pastor position is primarily a specialized ministry split between office management, and family ministries (including children’s religious education).

Depending on the candidate’s gifts and calling, one additional secondary-ministry component could be added (occasional preaching, pastoral care, community service, etc.).
