The transition of Evin Carvill-Ziemer to the New England Region leaves an opening on our fabulous Central East staff team that is ready and waiting for someone new to bring their unique story and experience to the work of companioning and championing congregations as they grapple with the work of creating beloved community in an a rapidly changing world. The position will be filled sometime this fall or winter and there is still time to consider whether this is something that you might aspire to. This particular position will be serving congregations in upstate, north, east and central New York State (but not New York City).
The position description (PDF) has the details, but it doesn't mention things like the opportunity for personal challenge and growth. In the words of recently retired Patricia Infante, "your heart will be broken as often as it is filled by the people, the stories, the children, the youth, the history, the generosity, the messiness, and the amazing acts of faithfulness you will encounter along the way. It is truly life-changing work and maybe, just maybe, it’s your season to serve."
If you have questions about this work and the team, feel free to reach out to Rev. Megan Foley, the hiring manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or any of our staff to ask questions.
