Trinity Episcopal Church is seeking a Curate (with the possibility of becoming Associate Rector), to work collaboratively with the Rector to serve our growing, prayerful, and dedicated downtown parish. Trinity is a transitional sized parish with a commitment to increasing our ability to grow and form disciples, intensifying our outreach efforts, and reaching the rapidly redeveloping downtown area. The ministry of the curate will have special focus on Evangelism and Outreach, but they will take part in all aspects of priestly ministry: preaching, teaching, pastoral care, and administration of the Sacraments. This is a new position to meet the needs and mission of a growing parish.
A successful candidate for Curate will be a transitional deacon or priest who has a deep and abiding love for Jesus and for all of God’s children. She or he will have a passion to grow and further develop their own discipleship and assist others in doing the same. The Curate can expect intentional mentoring and the opportunity to partner with the rector and lay leadership to dream and imagine about all that the future of Trinity Church can be.
This position is full-time; salary will be in accordance with our diocesan guidelines. Full benefits are available for the curate and their family.
Trinity Episcopal Church is entering its 175th year of ministry in Fort Wayne. We are a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana. Trinity is a community with a rich history that informs but does not define our future. Our nursery and youth programs, as well as young adult ministries are growing.
We worship at 7:30am and 10:00am on Sunday mornings. Every Friday morning, we offer a mass with the sacrament of unction, followed by a Bible study. Throughout the year we offer Evensongs, Services of Lessons and Carols, and special Holy Day liturgies.
Fort Wayne is consistently rated one of the top cities to raise a family. The Children’s Zoo, Ft. Wayne Trail System, Tincaps Baseball Stadium, Local Theatre, and Riverfront are second to none. The city is also host to a number of local restaurants, coffee shops, and microbreweries. It offers easy access to Indianapolis, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Detroit.
