Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto (MCC Toronto) has an extraordinary opportunity for an ordained Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (UFMCC) clergy with an interest in social justice issues and serving in a progressive spiritual community.
MCC Toronto, established in 1973, is a progressive spiritual community, rooted in Christianity and originally founded to serve the needs of the LGBT community. Today our congregation is diverse: our heterosexual community has grown significantly; over 30 ethnic backgrounds are represented; over 20 countries reported as a place of birth; more than 20 different languages are spoken and we are home to a wide range of faith backgrounds, including individuals with no previous church history. On average, 600 people attend our worship services every Sunday. For people facing life’s challenges, a wide range of programs and support groups are offered. MCC Toronto also offers classes, seminars, retreats and workshops for spiritual and personal growth. MCC Toronto’s vision is to be a Bridge. We believe in the core values of Spirituality, Diversity and Advocacy.
Our rich and successful history of social justice has given us a unique position in Toronto, in Canada, and increasingly in the world. We led the battle for same-sex marriage in 2001. In August of 2011, we were invited to officiate at the state funeral of Jack Layton, a senior Canadian statesman, affirming our position as a progressive, inclusive faith community that is becoming a beacon for change in the world. Historically, our recent growth is unparalleled and we are seeking an Executive Pastor to work with our passionate and committed team of staff and volunteers. Reporting to the Senior Pastor, this position will further advance the vibrant paths of spiritual growth at MCC Toronto.
