What We Desire



Immanuel Church Highlands is a family-friendly parish with a desire to grow. We are looking for an energetic priest who will work in partnership with us as we undertake the work of revitalizing our congregation. We look forward to engaging with a rector who has strong administrative skills and who will recognize the God-given gifts of our lay persons, so they are encouraged to assume and carry out leadership opportunities. We want a rector who will welcome newcomers as Jesus would and connect prospective members with the people and programs of our parish. That person will be a spiritual leader who will encourage us to embrace positive change while nurturing the traditions we cherish, as well as help us balance our needs within our parish with needs beyond our church walls. We value thought-provoking sermons that help deepen our relationship to God and each other. Our ideal rector will have a good sense of humor, and be approachable, kind, empathetic, and able to listen patiently in a nonjudgmental way. The ability to relate to people of all ages, especially youth, is very important. If this describes you, please consider us as your next church home!
