Associate Pastor

We are expanding our staff to include a full-time Designated Associate Pastor.  We are looking for someone who is smart, engaging, faithful, energetic, strategic, creative, and innovative. We are looking for an Associate Pastor who enjoys and appreciates diversity and is stimulated by and can work well with a variety of people; who is comfortable in a board room and in a homeless shelter.

 This position is about fifty percent general pastoral duties shared with Rev. Colby (preaching ~ 1.5 Sundays / month, worship leadership, shared pastoral care, supporting committees, etc.) and fifty percent focused on intentional outreach to the downtown Saint Paul community.

The position is now posted and the official Ministry Information Form (MIF) can be found on the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) website here.

We think this is an exciting opportunity in a great city.  Potential candidates can be in contact with Rev. Colby, or with our Ministry Information Form references.  To apply, candidates must send their Personal Information Form onto the presbytery’s designated search team as indicated in our MIF in order to be considered. 

Act quickly as applications will be closed on November 13, 2018. Send PDFs or resumes to Rev. Denise Dunbar-Perkins (at the link above) as soon as possible to be considered.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Rev. David Colby at
