  • The Northern Miami Valley Episcopal Cluster in Champaign County, Ohio seeks a half- to three-quarter time priest-in-charge for two active yet historical congregations. Our churches have worked together for two decades. Each congregation retains its individuality while sharing a priest, finances and similar outreach missions. Each congregation focuses on working with and giving back to our local communities to meet current needs. Situated between Columbus and Dayton, with Cincinnati just a bit farther south, our communities consist of rural backgrounds with quaint villages that offer excellent schools, restaurants and numerous nearby opportunities for social and cultural development.

    The Cluster seeks a collaborative leader who can not only guide our members through worship and spiritual growth, offering a thoughtful leadership, but who can also be an important and active part of our communities. Our priest should attend both congregational and Cluster functions as well as engage with other clergy in the county. We desire a priest who aims to listen as well as teach and who is excited to help us grow our presence in our communities, and welcome potential new members.

    The Cluster offers two services each Sunday morning as well as occasional joint services. We have an average total Sunday attendance of about 45 and operate on a joint budget. Please find further information at www.nmvec.org.
