Rector Search

Calling Committee opens search for new rector

To view a comprehensive overview of the search process, click here.

The search with the National Church is opened and our search is posted on the Diocese of Washington’s website. The application period will close on October 21, 2016. Parishioners, especially, and friends of Epiphany are asked to take an active role in the search process.

For Candidates

Epiphany is a city parish with a large physical plant, diverse congregation, and many urban ministries. ASA 190; two Sunday and four weekday services. Compensation up to $112,000, depending on experience and diocesan salary guidelines.  Click here to view the Parish Profile. See more details on the OTM website, and apply by sending resume and your OTM portfolio to the Calling Committee by October 21. 2016. OTM Profile is also available here.

As they we receive them, the search committee will review submitted applications and conduct further assessment to select candidates for deeper and more thorough consideration. We will conduct web-based interviews to further refine our selection and finally make site visits by teams of search committee members. Our goal will be to prayerfully discern a slate of two to four candidates for submission to the full Vestry for their consideration. The Vestry makes the final decision about whom to call as the next rector. This part of the process is highly confidential.

For Parishioners and Friends

  • Most important, continue to hold the Rector Calling Committee and our mission in your prayers.
  • Share the news that Epiphany is searching for a new rector with your friends and acquaintances, and encourage potential candidates to apply by sending their OTM Profile and resume to epiphanysearch2015@gmail.com.
  • Finally, please continue to support the church during this transition period by giving joyously and generously of your time, talent and treasure.

Gracious God, we pray for this parish church and for the Calling Committee as we seek to call a new Rector. Help us to be strong, open, forgiving — and truthful to those discerning a call to minister in this place. Accompany us on our journey in the knowledge of your love for us and your power to unite us all. AMEN
