Eglinton St. George's United Church is in Search of Inspired Leadership!
September 13, 2012 update
Eglinton St. George's United Church is a vibrant, energetic congregation of
840 members in urban Toronto, just west of Yonge Street, half way between Eglinton Avenue and
Lawrence Avenue. Our congregation completed their Joint Needs Assessment Committee (JNAC)
process and report in March, 2012. We are searching for experienced ministers who complement
each other in skills, and who will work in partnership with our staff and committed congregation.
Our Sunday morning services are known for their excellence and diversity in music and liturgical
presentation, and our Christian Education program is thriving, with a wonderful program for
children on Sundays and an active adult program during the week. The JNAC report attached
provides additional information on the congregation, its activities and initiatives.
In the wake of this study, the congregation endorsed the proposal to establish a ministerial
team made up of two serving ministers. The two ministers envisioned in the JNAC report are:
Minister of Worship and Pastoral Care, and
Minister of Congregational Development and Growth.
Please find attached the two position descriptions as approved by Governing
Council on September 11, 2012. These will be used to evaluate applicants.
Applications are welcomed until October 12, 2012, and should be directed in
confidence to Sarah Hisey, Corresponding Secretary at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Joint Search Committee is co-chaired by Carolyn Woodland and Jim Black.
Membership also includes Jo Ann Dizy, Jackie Stothers, David Lemmon, Heidi Parker,
John Blevins, Marg Steed and Heather Parker. These members are joined by
Presbytery representatives David Wood and Mark MacLean.
