Site Description

The Williston Federated Church (United Church of Christ and United Methodist Church)is located in the historic village of Williston in beautiful Chittenden County. We are a congregation of 430 members who are actively involved in mission - locally, nationally, and globally. Our Mission Statement is also a statement of how we conduct our lives: "Our church is a community which seeks, welcomes and gathers people to share the Gospel of God's love, enables people to find fullness of life thorugh Jesus Christ, goes into the world to live lovingly and justly as servants of Christ, and responds actively to human need." We are an Open and Affirming, Reconciling Congregation.

Stipend Expectation

This site meets the stipend expectation

Student Involvement

The involvement of the student would be determined by the particular gifts and talents of the student as well as the learning goals that s/he articulates. We would expect the student to participate in the Worship service each week, preach several times a year, occasionally attend a Committee or Official Board meeting, participate in the education ministry, and support one or more of the mission outreaches of the church.

Commitment to Educating Ministers

Our most recent experience as a Teaching Parish (2009-2010) was a whole-hearted and whole-congregation based support of our Student Pastor. The TPC was actively involved; the Pastor met each week with our Student Pastor to provide Field Education Supervision. The congregation is fully supportive of the ministry of educating pastors and provides the welcome, prayers, and supervision that helps to shape the pastor.

Comments

We are a congregation with a great sense of humor. We faithfully strive to show God's love to our neighbors near and far.
