St. David's — Aurora

St. David’s is seeking a .7 time rector to serve the family-sized congregation. All are welcome at St. David’s, a community of faith who seek to serve all equally and are actively involved in neighborhood and community outreach just as they are with each other. The church grounds are located on five acres, and provide space for community and church events as well as worship. Since 2019, the church building has been used by a local ELCA congregation as well. Sunday worship includes Rite II liturgy, and parishioners enjoy using both traditional BCP liturgy and trying news ways of worshipping. During the Covid-19 pandemic, parishioners have been able to attend church via Zoom. When attendance in person has been permitted during the pandemic, it is still live-streamed for those unable to come in person so that everyone may be included. A virtual coffee hour is also held each week which has kept the congregation connected.

St. David’s outreach opportunities include a relationship with the local elementary school, Laundry Love ministry and Sandwich Board.

The City of Aurora is located in the far west suburbs, and has a population of 200,000. There is a commuter rail line that allows easy transit to and from downtown Chicago. Civic leadership and community involvement have made Aurora a desirable place to live, with a vibrant riverfront and award-winning local theatre. The community is working hard to meet the needs of all citizens, particularly those who live in poverty, and recently a citizens review board has been developed for the police department.

The next rector of St. David’s should have energy for community engagement, be open to creative liturgy and be welcoming of all parishioners and community members. To learn more, please download the parish profile, view the OTM and visit the St. David’s website. To apply, please fill out the Clergy Form for Transitions.
