The Fellowship involves leading worship, coordinating the outreach ministries of Grace Church, participating in all aspects of parish administration, and living a shared life with the staff and wider parish community. The particular gifts of any applicant will be considered in the course of determining the duties and responsibilities of the Fellow in their year of service.
