Stay connected during this important time as we search for a new rector with God’s help.

We seek a rector who is centered in Christ, has theological training, and is grounded in scripture, prayer and the Episcopal liturgy. We value reason and authenticity and seek a rector who offers sermons and formation classes that address the mystery of our Christian faith, making a connection to how the life of Jesus is relevant in the world today. We seek a leader who will walk with all the parishioners of Good Samaritan Episcopal Church wherever we are on our spiritual journey. In the fall of 2022 we conducted a parish survey to help guide our rector search. Based on this survey, especially the written comments, it’s clear that our parish is looking for a rector who is warm, compassionate, open-minded, approachable and enjoys a good laugh! We’d like a rector who appreciates our commitment to inclusion, who is committed to leading us in reaching out to the community (especially to young families), and who shares our desire to be a welcoming and diverse congregation.

Our congregation values our adult formation gatherings and outreach programs. We appreciate inspirational and occasionally humorous sermons that are sprinkled with personal stories of faith. We enjoy worshiping together, listening to music, conversing, and sharing food. We seek a leader who will guide us in our spiritual growth, help us retain current members, re-engage with worshippers who have not returned after pandemic restrictions lifted and attract new members. We desire to invite the diverse population in our surrounding community to join us by sharing God’s love. We feel that we are unique in that we are a small congregation of friends who are open, affirming and truly welcoming to everyone!
