Assistant Rector for Evangelism, Children, Youth & Family Ministry

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Hickory NC is seeking an Assistant Rector to partner with us in creating a sacramental, missional church outside the walls of the church while also helping us strengthen and expand ministry with children, youth, and families inside and outside the walls of Ascension. The Assistant will work in partnership with staff and vestry to better understand and engage in God’s mission in our community and strengthen the opportunities for faith formation and spiritual renewal for children, youth, and families. This position also requires the sharing of sacramental and liturgical responsibilities with the Rector for traditional worship services.

We are looking for candidates who are self-motivated and creative; have strong relational skills; connect well with youth, young children, and parents; are excited to get involved with the community beyond the church; are self-aware; and are excited to experiment and learn as we figure out together how to expand the reach of the Episcopal Church in our community.
