Christ Church Millwood
About Christ Church & Our Next Priest-in-Charge
Christ Church, Millwood is seeking its next priest-in-charge, with the possibility of being converted to rector following mutual discernment.
We are a village church in a richly diverse and unspoiled county within 70 miles of Washington DC, thus having the best of town and country. Our congregation includes farmers, teachers, musicians, politicians, community activists, artists, athletes, writers, lawyers, doctors, a retired general, a fitness trainer, a web designer, and a poet. We have families that have worshipped here for generations and families that just arrived. Our spiritual leader needs to nurture our growth and be innovative. In other words, our leader must enjoy people of all shapes, forms, and economic levels.
We are a well-educated bunch and like to learn. We would like a priest/teacher who can explain the passages of the Bible based upon the periods in which they were written and apply them toward our spiritual transformation.
When parishioners are dealing with illness, we would like a minister who has the willingness and the gift to provide support to them through visits to their home or hospital. When parishioners are in need of counseling, we would like a priest who is comfortable offering spiritual guidance as well.
We would like a priest who participates in the warp and weave of our community.
Please also be sure to read as part of your discernment.…
