DART-related organizations seek long-term, sustainable improvements at a systemic level. DART organizations engage in direct action assemblies in which thousands of people from a cross-section of faith traditions publicly hold decision-makers accountable on solutions to serious local community problems. DART organizations’ recent victories include: multi-million dollar investments in affordable housing, increased access to primary health and dental care, statewide legislation to rein in the payday loan industry, implementation of restorative justice practices in public schools, decreasing the high number of juvenile arrests for non-serious offenses, and expanding opportunities for people released from jail/prison.

Church of the Holy Communion (posted on 1/5/15)
Minister of Hospitality
Church of the Holy Communion, an Episcopal Church in the center of Memphis, seeks to be a sacred presence, grounded in the servant ministry of Jesus, offering spiritual growth opportunities for all. To further this mission, we seek to appoint a creative and dynamic lay Minister of Hospitality who will coordinate the welcome and incorporation of our newcomers, further our efforts to connect with the un-churched, and oversee certain parish life events.
At Holy Communion, we realize that it can be challenging for someone to try a church for the first time. In response, we launched a successful and intentional newcomers ministry in 2013 that has come to include handwritten letters to all of our new neighbors, a scheduled ministry of Sunday morning greeters, and personal contact with every visitor by clergy and lay staff. The Minister of Hospitality will facilitate and develop this volunteer-driven ministry, and maintain the official parish register. Holy Communion’s location in a residential neighborhood along one of Memphis’ main thoroughfares positions it well for ministry to the so-called “nones” – people who identify as not having a religious affiliation. The Minister of Hospitality will develop and implement strategies for our parish to connect with these people in meaningful and non-traditional ways.
Fellowship is an important component of life at Holy Communion. The Minister of Hospitality will coordinate four major parish events annually and oversee routine hospitality. Church of the Holy Communion is a constituent part of the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee, and shares its experience of daily life with St. Mary’s Episcopal School. Teamwork is a core value for all members of the Holy Communion staff; the Minister of Hospitality can expect to receive support from and provide support to other ministry areas when needed.
The successful candidate will be a lay professional with a sense of vocation around connecting people with God and God’s Church in new and creative ways. He or she will have relevant education and experience, and will approach the entirety of his or her ministry with grace, good humor, and an unwavering commitment to achieve excellence in all things while still maintaining good physical, spiritual, and mental wellness.
A complete application packet will include a cover letter, resume, and a list of three references. Samples of previous work may be requested. Minister of Hospitality is a full-time position with health and retirement benefits according to church policy.
