Parish Associate
United Church of Chapel Hill
United Church of Chapel Hill is searching for an experienced pastoral leader to join our staff team as a Parish Associate. This is a part time position intended to supplement our pastoral resources for caregiving and worship leadership. Although the details of the position are negotiable with right candidate, the parish associate will work approximately 10-20 hours weekly. She will be a regular, vocal, and visible contributor to the church’s life of worship, leading in liturgy and prayers almost weekly and preaching 4-6 times annually. The parish associate is also a key member of the pastoral team in extending caregiving ministries throughout the church. She will provide spiritual care directly to members of the church by making occasional house calls and hospital visits, but a higher priority for her will be to equip the congregation as a community of caregivers. Therefore we are looking, especially, for a parish associate who will bring spiritual gifts for teaching, building systems, and creating a culture of caregiving that will permeate the whole church. United Church of Chapel Hill is a congregation of more than 800 members with three regular worship services on Sunday mornings, including a growing Spanish language ministry. Our congregation is highly committed to racial equity and to the elevation of women’s voices for proclaiming the Gospel. The position is open to ordained ministers from any ecclesiastical tradition able to attain privilege of call in the United Church of Christ. Interested candidates, please send a CV and letter of interest, along with a ministerial profile, if available, to search chair Julie Mitchell at ministrysearch@unitedchurch.org. Other inquiries to Senior Pastor Cameron Barr at cbarr@unitedchurch.org.
