Vision Statement for our Program and Minister of Music
St. Paul’s Church desires a highly-participatory music program centered on Episcopal liturgy and hymnody with excellence, diversity of music and choirs for all ages. We plan to build upon our strong adult choir, to develop an outstanding children and youth choir program, building upon the large and growing numbers of children and teenagers in our parish, and to involve as many adults as possible in our music ministry. We believe strongly in membership growth and seek to enrich the spiritual journey of each member. To reach our goals, we seek an exceptional musician, who shares our goals and can build an outstanding music program using music as an instrument to increase membership and enrich the spiritual journey of parishioners.
