Position Type: Part time (PT)

How to apply:
Email a cover letter, resume, three references, & any additional materials that reflect your unique gifts and perspective (e.g. writing, media, creative projects) to employment@emmausway.net. Review of applications will begin on May 25.

Position Description:
Emmaus Way Church is seeking a part-time (approx. 20 hours/week) pastor to join our community's bi-vocational staff team. Founded in 2005, Emmaus Way is a holistic, missional Christian community dedicated to participating in God's redemptive work in Durham, NC. This shared passion finds expression in thoughtful practices that shape our common life together: an open Eucharist table, dialogical interpretation of Scripture, liturgical engagement with the arts, a Minister’s Liturgy (our rite of belonging), and missional activism through diverse community partnerships. These practices, in turn, embody four core identities that guide our collective conversation and imagination.
• We are an organic community shaped by the particularity of our individual voices, and informed by our local context in Durham, NC.
• We are a Christian community within the universal catholic church, conversant with the liturgy and theology of diverse Christian traditions past and present.
• We are theologically orthodox, following and valuing the historical narrative of Christianity as expressed in the creeds (e.g. Nicene Creed).
• We are theologically curious, seeking out dialogue and collaboration with texts and voices beyond the Christian tradition.

As a bi-vocational pastor in our community, the person who fills this position will be an integral voice within an egalitarian staff of friends and equals, serving alongside a congregation of co-ministers who all work to embody the redemptive kingdom of Christ. Because we deeply value the diverse passions and experiences our bi-vocational staff bring to their work at Emmaus Way, we seek a candidate whose unique gifts and perspective will implicitly inform this position and our community. More specifically, however, we anticipate this approximately 20-hour per week position will center on the following responsibilities:
• Actively engage as a member of staff team in monthly meetings and other relevant activities
• Participate in weekly meetings of Emmaus Way's text team (a group of staff and laity that curates our Sunday dialogues)
• Prepare and lead Sunday sermon dialogues on an incremental basis (5-10 per year)
• Play a primary role in providing pastoral care (e.g. counseling, spiritual direction) to members of the Emmaus Way community
• Serve on staff rotation to open/setup and close/teardown worship space each Sunday
• Participate or initiate in other areas of ministry (e.g. arts, children’s ministry, mission) according to talent/inclination

An ideal candidate will possess:
• A proactive spirit and a creative, collaborative approach to ministry.
• A commitment to radical hospitality.
• Perspectives and experiences that enhance the diversity of God’s kingdom in our midst; women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
• A graduate degree in divinity, theology, counseling, or another relevant field; or an equivalent combination of education/experience.

Compensation:
$17,500–$22,500
