Associate for Parish Administration

Trinity Episcopal Church in Highland Park, Illinois, seeks a part-time (20 hours/week) Associate for Parish Administration. The Associate for Parish Administration assists the parish staff, leadership, and members in their ministry by coordinating, maintaining, and facilitating the institutional infrastructure that makes up Trinity Church and enlivens its ministry. While the Associate for Parish Administration reports to the Priest-in-Charge, the position also provides service and support to other staff and parish leadership, such as the Vestry and ministry leaders, as determined by the Priest-in-Charge. The Associate for Parish Administration is the point of first contact and primary coordinator of communications. Though the position is primarily administrative, Trinity welcomes candidates interested in exploring new ministry opportunities (such as those studying for ministry) and would be willing to create a role that includes field education opportunities for those seeking a career in ministry. The hourly wage is between $20 and $25 per hour, depending on experience, and include two weeks of paid vacation, sick days accrued at one per month, and access to the diocesan Employee Assistance Program. This position is a one-year term contract and can be renewed. Candidates for ordained or lay ministry are warmly encouraged to apply.

About Trinity Episcopal Church: Trinity Episcopal Church is a small, historic Episcopal church of about 80 members currently in the process of a “gut rehab”—a post-COVID rethinking of the role in the church in the local community. Trinity works in collaboration with three other local churches to develop joint formation, social events, and a ministry with persons seeking asylum. Trinity strives to make a place for anyone who wishes explore their connection to the divine and to one another and hopes to be a church where the diversity of sexuality, gender, ethnicity and race, cultural heritage, and life experience can come together and share their many gifts.
