Job Opening: Full-time, St. Columba (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.
