Trinity, Folsom

Location: Folsom, California

Website: www.trinityfolsom.org

Current Status: Seeking Full-Time Rector | Receiving Names until 06/14/24

We seek a full-time rector to lead our vibrant, growing parish into transformational community impact. Nestled in Folsom’s historic district, Trinity blends 168 years of Episcopal tradition with dynamic 21st century spirit, recently completing a $3M campus renovation.

Our vision – “to love God and one another as we seek God’s purpose for our lives” – guides all we do, from traditional worship and music to robust Christian education across all ages. Trinity is a debt-free parish primed for impact as a program-sized church under visionary leadership, with an average Sunday attendance of 220.

The rector will uphold Trinity’s liturgical roots while casting a compelling vision for growth through outreach, relentless inclusion, and nurturing the faith of diverse members, especially families and youth. Responsibilities span leading transformative worship, providing compassionate pastoral care, and strategically facilitating growth through community partnerships and empowering lay leaders.

For a spiritually grounded pastor with a gift for preaching and skills in church operations, we offer fertile soil: deeply rooted in Anglican tradition yet yearning to embody Christ’s inclusive love more fully in the community. Above all, we seek one who will fully embrace our call to deepen love for God and neighbor through vibrant worship, radically welcoming community, and Spirit-led service.

Salary: $122,000: 4 weeks’ vacation; full family health benefits; 2 weeks Continuing Education.
