We are a small parish located in rural Jefferson County, NY, about 60 miles north of Syracuse. Our church is 169 years young. We have begun our search for a priest to serve our congregation on a part-time basis.

We are an active congregation of committed Christians, looking to serve God, each other and our community. We have been blessed by the services of our parish priest, Fr. Jerry Wichelns, for the past three years, and we also have many active lay-led ministries. Among these: lay-led Morning Prayer services, a men’s fellowship group, a women’s Bible study group, a women’s prayer group, adult and children’s education and pastoral ministries to the ill and infirm. Members of Emmanuel also coordinate many outreach ministries, including community dinners, rummage sales, a Christmas bazaar, Operation Christmas Child, providing Christmas stockings to underprivileged children, and Livemore Ministries, an ecumenical women’s fellowship organization.

We are seeking a passionate spiritual leader who is interested in getting to know us, learning our stories and joining our faith community. We look for skills that include biblical preaching and teaching and the ability to help people apply scriptural truths to their individual lives. We would also like a priest who will provide counseling and who has a heart for pastoral care.

We see ourselves as a warm, welcoming community that is excited about growing spiritually and adding new people to our congregation. We encourage you to contact us if you are interested in learning more about this position.

Candidates, please send  resume, completed OTM profile and letter of interest to the Rev. Canon Carrie Schofield-Broadbent.


Since its founding in 1871, Grace Church has been a beacon for social justice and progressive activism. The people at Grace know they have a role to play in promoting peace and justice in our community and spreading the knowledge of God’s universal love.

We cherish the multi-ethnic diversity of our congregation, which is unique within the Diocese of Central New York. However, it is also a significant and important ongoing challenge to retain, nourish and grow this diversity. In addition, although we sit at the doorstep of major institutions of higher learning (specifically, Syracuse University and SUNY Upstate Medical University), we have struggled to make lasting connections with students, faculty and staff.

Our facilities are in excellent shape with a new, commercial kitchen; elevator lifts; and new office, fellowship and meeting spaces. These beautiful spaces are underutilized and could be a greater source of additional revenue to support parish ministries.
