Pastoral Assistant and Chanter

Unique Smaller Parish Experience

Seeking candidates interested in a holistic parish ministry experience. Smaller, but very dynamic, parish (~100 families) hiring a full-time Pastoral Assistant to focus primarily on youth and music ministries, but also to aid in growing an active outreach ministry to the indigent.

Seminary-trained candidates are preferred; equivalent experience will be considered. The candidate must be proficient in Byzantine Chant. Excellent opportunity for youth religious education with committed Orthodox families desiring continued formation of their children; current activities include, an active Sunday School (outside of the Divine Liturgy), monthly GOYA and JOY gatherings, intensive summer church school program, parish-wide educational retreats, youth chant classes, and creative fellowship outings.

The candidate will lead the chanting of all liturgical services, accompanied by a strong choir which includes numerous teens and young adults; many of whom are formally studying Byzantine Chant.

Finally, parish Outreach Programs include St. John’s “Open Door” bi-monthly Community Meal which feeds hundreds of people monthly. The candidate would work to engage local young adults and college students in this vital ministry to the poor.

Salary ranges $40-50K and commensurate with experience. St. John the Divine Parish is in Wheeling, WV, less than 1 hour from Pittsburgh, PA.
