Incumbent, Full Time, St Barnabas, Medicine Hat

The Rt. Rev. Greg Kerr-Wilson seeks a full time Incumbent priest for St. Barnabas, Medicine Hat, Alberta.

St Barnabas is an active, mature, Church with many ministries serving a city of 63,000 people in South Eastern Alberta’s sunniest city, about 3 hours East of Calgary.

The welcoming, multi-generational parish enjoys a wide diversity in its members and has active ministries from nursery to seniors. Clearly Christ centered, St. Barnabas seeks to reach out to its congregations and the community through its 261 members.

St Barnabas is financially stable and enjoys a good functional multi-use debt free building in downtown Medicine Hat. Our present focus includes growing our Sunday School and Youth, serving our young families, reaching out to our community, and to continue building on the foundation already laid.

The Incumbent will be a strong leader, a good manager, capable teacher, able to connect with people, and will gently guide the congregation through this time of change and into the future by encouraging the spiritual gifts and abilities of members.

The Incumbent will be a genuine servant of Jesus Christ, called to be a good shepherd, and relying on the Holy Spirit. The Incumbent will have a deep Christian knowledge, and give Bible based teaching for everyday living, and challenge us to respond faithfully to the Word mediated through scripture, reason and tradition.
