Christ Episcopal Church — Ottawa

Christ Episcopal Church in Ottawa is searching for a part-time rector. Located about 90 miles west of Chicago, Christ Church is a family and community centered congregation in central Illinois. The congregation is transitioning out of membership in a cluster ministry of four churches, and is seeking a priest to lead them into their next chapter. The town of Ottawa is a river community, in the beautiful valley at the union of the Fox and Illinois rivers, and has a good school system and busy downtown area.

Christ Church members are a close-knit group, welcoming to all members of the community and enjoy spending time together in and outside of church. The congregation desires a leader who can laugh with them, grow with them and be a pastoral part of the church and Ottawa community. Sacramental leadership, pastoral care and openness are some of the qualities desired in the next rector. As the church transitions from being a member of a group of churches to being their own community, they are looking for someone to partner with them as they re-invent themselves.

To learn more, please visit the church website, download their parish profile or check out their OTM portfolio. To apply, please fill out the Clergy Form For Transitions.
