Queenswood United Church, is seeking a Three-Quarter Time, Minister of Word, Sacrament and Pastoral Care
Start Date 2 January 2017 (or earlier if possible)
Queenswood United Church (QUC) is located in Queenswood Heights, a suburb of Orleans, in eastern OTTAWA. We are a welcoming, energetic, inclusive congregation of 70+ families (predominantly young retirees and seniors) who find joy, support, and strength in worshipping, singing, and working together. We are active seekers, striving to understand God’s will for us.
Due to the departure of our previous full time ordained Minister in August 2015, we are now seeking a three quarter time ordained minister who can identify with our congregation, and who is very enthusiastic about working with us, to solidify our spiritual vision of assisting people at risk and working with other churches, as we together “Living God’s Dream”. Our vision implementation will be a further extension to an already established and significant outreach program.
We therefore seek a Minister who possesses leadership and communication skills that will serve to effectively, seek opportunities for outreach partnerships in our vision implementation, generate thought inspiring sermons for our congregation, and demonstrate caring and compassion, with a keen interest in pastoral care, as well as outreach.
We will be accepting cover letters presenting your skills and gifts, a resume, and a statement of faith from candidates until 15 July 2016, at LivingGodsDream@queenswoodunited.org
