Director of Facilities and Grounds -- St. Columba, Memphis, TN (Diocese of West Tennessee)

St. Columba, the camp and retreat center of the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee, seeks its next Director of Facilities and Grounds to steward the property and ministry through its next exciting generation. A ministry founded in 1982, St. Columba’s property includes 160-acres, two lodges that house up to 75 people, two outdoor pavilions, two hermitages, two staff residences and a maintenance building. In the coming 24 months facility enhancements of nearly $3 million will add more lodging and meeting space as well as renovate St. Columba’s Scheibler Lodge. We want a gifted, hands-on manager who enjoys getting their hands dirty, and a smart, effective leader who can regularly figure out how to do more with less. A gifted hand will be required to keep up with regular maintenance as well as shape the future lodges so that St. Columba’s mission can be met better than it ever has before.

We seek an individual who balances the precision required to care for the smaller, lesser noticed, details with the skills needed to carry out hands-on maintenance and property enhancement on behalf of our beloved guests and campers. We also seek an individual who embodies St. Columba’s spirit of anticipatory hospitality- that is to say someone who identifies problems before they are problems and addresses issues that are most likely to affect guest experiences.

The right candidate will have broad experience in all (or most) areas of general maintenance and repair (HVAC, electrical, plumbing, building codes, water testing, vehicles, tractors, mowers, painting, tiling, etc.). A careful candidate who seeks to get the most out of aging equipment as well as an ambitious candidate who can lead and implement property improvement is paramount to success. St. Columba requires a Director of Facilities and Grounds who will love the physical and natural spaces both for the ministry they provide and the limitations they have.

Cook I, Prep Cook -- The Bishop's Ranch, Healdsburg, CA (Diocese of California)

The Bishop’s Ranch is a self-supporting institution of the Episcopal Diocese of California.

The mission of the Ranch is to serve God by providing for people of all walks of life a place where lives are changed; a place of hospitality amidst the beauty of God’s creation where renewal of spirit, mind and body is nourished, leading to spiritual growth and closer relationships with God and one another.

We fulfill the mission of the Ranch by providing hospitality for retreats, conferences and other gatherings to groups and individuals from the Diocese of California, other churches, and non-profit groups. Our goal is to provide these services in a personal and relaxed but efficient way that enables guests to reach their goals for spiritual, personal, and organizational growth.

Working at The Bishop’s Ranch is service-oriented, and doing our jobs successfully is based on teamwork. Because of the wide-ranging nature of the tasks involved in caring for our guests and facilities, it may be necessary to perform tasks outside our usual line of work. For example: when on duty in the kitchen a guest may come in and ask where sports equipment is found; an office worker may be called to help when a guest finds a broken water valve; a maintenance worker may need to help in the kitchen when a group suddenly has increased in numbers, or a cook must leave due to illness. The flexibility to help in such a situation in order to support our guests and the overall goals of the Ranch is a requirement of working at The Bishop’s Ranch.
