Associate Priest – Episcopal News Service

About Us: Based in Beverly Hills since 1925, All Saints Episcopal Church is a creative, transcendent, and spirit-filled church. We reach hungry, inclusive and servant-hearted people who faithfully seek meaning, community and connection with God. We are grounded in a sacred rhythm of worship, music, fellowship, and service to those in need, both in our parish and in the larger Los Angeles community. Our staff is growing and we are building new ministries, programs and support systems as we emerge from Covid during a complex transition period.

Summary of work: We are looking for an associate priest to work and live among us as a spirited, joyful and enthusiastic minister. We welcome applicants who are grounded in a Christ-centered faith, able to engage with all ages, appreciate and support all of our liturgical expressions, and who have excellent personal and professional boundaries. You will be a beloved member of a strong community of faith, and we invite you to walk with us on our journey of maturing Christian faith and life. The associate priest will have general clergy functions: liturgical, pastoral, teaching and administrative. It’s an exciting time of renewal as we start small groups, increase learning opportunities and improve our operations. The Associate Priest will have the opportunity to provide leadership in these areas during this time of gathering, reconnection and renewal.

We are looking for an associate priest who:

  • Preaches with a clear gospel message, grounded in scholarly textual, theological, and creative sources
  • Likes to teach and dialogue with us on how to deepen our Christian faith
  • Responds sensitively to pastoral needs: visiting, calling and communicating with parishioners as needed
  • Who understands the purpose and function of small groups within the church, and has some experience in growing small group ministries
  • Manages time wisely, has attention to detail, is autonomous, and clear on the progress of the project and the needs
  • Maintains confidentiality of sensitive information
  • Enjoy being with us, who can help us build trust and community through fellowship
  • Has a positive and cheerful approach to the Christian life and is ready to tackle difficult questions
  • Works collaboratively, communicates frequently and clearly
