Congregational Employment Opportunities
South Fraser Unitarian Congregation (SFUC) Search for a Sabbatical Minister
From January to May 2022 inclusive, Rev. Samaya Oakley will be on sabbatical from her call at SFUC. The SFUC Board has approved a search for a half-time sabbatical minister.
The main responsibility for the sabbatical minister will be to offer ten services, two per month, during this time. Our Sunday services are on Sunday afternoons at 1:30 pm Pacific. Additional services would include support of our Soul Matters groups (currently meeting once a month on Sunday afternoon), Board support, and support for our Worship Arts Team. We have a well-functioning Pastoral Care Team, which may need support in an emergency.
As we have made the decision to remain online for this congregational church year, we would envision the services offered to be online services. If five months seems too long, or two services per month are not possible, a sharing of the Sunday services with another minister could work. SFUC has used the Soul Matters theme-based monthly worship packages for several years.
SFUC is a strong, caring, shared ministry–based congregation with approximately 40 members, a staff of three (digital media coordinator, pianist, and Zoom tech assistant), and strong leadership in all committees. We will miss Rev. Samaya and look forward to the change of being in sabbatical and sharing our ministry with new voices.
If you are interested, please reach out to Rev. Samaya, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Karin Wegner, Board representative to the Sabbatical Committee, email@example.com. Please include a quick CV, a link to a Sunday message or two, and a brief note about why you are interested.
Our application closing date is October 31.
