West Hills Friends Meeting (WHF) is seeking a temporary Released Minister (“Interim Pastor”) to minister with us during our pastoral transition period, which resulted from the resignation of our greatly loved founding pastor.

As Quakers, we believe we are all ministers, and we also welcome the opportunity for consistency and coordination a paid interim minister can provide. We desire to find the right candidate soon to provide additional capacity to support WHF attendees and ministries while reducing the extra workload on our Elders and our released Children/Youth minister.

Our hope is that having an interim while we continue to discern where God is leading us next will provide our meeting more time for this discernment and allow objective feedback about us and our process.

We aren’t looking for someone with all the answers or someone who wants to be in charge. We are looking for an individual strongly committed to Quaker process and practice, whose first priority in life is to follow God’s leading, who is a great listener, and who has experience as a released minister.  

WHF is a Quaker meeting in Southwest Portland and a member of the newly formed Sierra Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends (SCYMF); WHF was previously part of Northwest Yearly Meeting (NWYM).  

Next Steps
We invite interested candidates to explore our website and the about us section https://westhillsfriends.org/about-us-1 to start to understand who we are.  If you are interested in finding out more about the position for yourself or someone you know, please contact office@westhillsfriends.org for details on the requirements and job description.
  
Note - The individual hired for this interim minister position will be ineligible for any WHF regular released ministry position; we will be considering only applicants interested in an interim role.
