The Diocese of Southern Ohio is pleased to announce a new position recently created on the bishop’s staff. The Missioner for Black Ministries of the Diocese of Southern Ohio will work to connect historically Black congregations to each other and to resources for vitality of mission, to develop and support lay and ordained leadership, to assist in development of strategic planning processes, and to advocate for ministries and congregations that serve Black communities. As a member of the bishop’s staff based in Cincinnati, the Missioner will resource, equip, and support the four historically African-American congregations in the diocese, (St. Simon of Cyrene, Cincinnati; St. Andrew’s, Cincinnati; St. Margaret’s, Dayton; St. Philip’s, Columbus) and other key diocesan groups such as the Union of Black Episcopalians, the diocesan reparations taskforce, and the diocesan Becoming Beloved Community initiatives.
The successful candidate can expect a compensation package both appropriate to the cost of living in Cincinnati, Ohio, and commensurate among the senior staff reporting to the bishop. Interviewing is targeted for early September, and it is hoped that the finalist could start sometime before January 1.
