Since our Rector retired in May 2021, the All Hallows Vestry and search committee is working closely with our Diocesan Consultant to manage the formal process of a Rector Search. We are seeking a full-time Rector to help us to grow and lead our parish into the future. During the pandemic, All Hallows adapted and bonded together. We wish to sustain this positive momentum with a Rector who wants to steer our ship! The parish will offer our Rector a lovely, historic home in the heart of Snow Hill, MD, only a short walk from our church, and walking distance to the Pocomoke River and the downtown Market Street area.
The Rectory on Federal Street is a contributing property in the Historic District in Snow Hill. An authentic Federal home built in the 1820’s, it was deeded to All Hallows in 1843, and has been the Parish Rectory ever since.
In the past 10 years, a new roof, remodeled powder room, new kitchen and laundry appliances have been installed. This residence has been rented by the organist or occupied by the Rector for the past 12 years.
This historic home has three bedrooms, a family room, dining room, living room, laundry area, a central hall, three fireplaces, and a kitchen. There is a screened-in porch on the side. There is a semi-finished attic and a basement. The house has central heat and air conditioning. There is a detached one-car garage. Plans are being made to add an additional full bath on the second floor.
Our Congregation desires the following qualities:
All Hallows seeks a minister to deliver thought-provoking sermons that are based on the Gospel and that relate the life and teachings of Christ to our daily lives. Sermons would ideally address the relationship of the Gospel to current events and relate our faith to issues of the broader church. A good sense of humor is always an asset. A seasoned speaker is desired.
All Hallows Parish – Snow Hill, Maryland
All Hallows seeks a minister who will be available and reach out to people in need both in our church and in our community. He or she should take time to talk with and/or visit with people, especially those who are in crisis or in transition. Personal visits to home-bound parishioners is strongly desired and expected.
Congregational Development and Growth are very important to our church members and therefore, our new minister should make them a priority. Because of the historic significance of All Hallows’ structure, it is hoped that a new minister will appreciate the uniqueness of our setting, our heritage and our history. It is believed that these are valuable tools that can be used in Congregational Development. At the same time, All Hallows seeks a minister who is a progressive thinker. We are prayerful that our leader is passionate about his/her ministry and expresses joy in the community through participation in activities including a visible presence in Civic organizations and the local Snow Hill Ministerial Association.
All Hallows seeks a minister who has a creative approach to teaching who will conduct special opportunities for worship and fellowship, at all times and especially during the seasons of Lent and Advent. Availability to provide counseling for parishioners is a highly valued expectation for a new minister, as well.
