Job Details

The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with St. Bartholomew's Church in the search for a Director of Development.Reporting to the Rector, the Director of Development will craft and implement a comprehensive development strategy reflecting the Church’s core values. The Director will partner with the Rector and Church leaders to execute a complex and sophisticated fundraising plan that will inspire parishioners to generously share their gifts of time, talent, and resources for the ongoing sustainability of the church.

Located in Midtown Manhattan, St. Bart’s Church is a welcoming and progressive Episcopal community of faith housed in an extraordinary National Historic Landmark-designated building. Widely known for its long history of excellent preaching, outstanding music, and commitment to community outreach, St. Bart’s currently has a rapidly-expanding community gathering for worship and educational programming.

St. Bart’s has been part of the fabric of New York City for 180 years. It moved with the population’s march uptown from its original location at Lafayette Place and Great Jones Street, to Madison Avenue at 44th Street, and finally to Park Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets. Those who step inside find St. Bart’s to be a place of calm, respite, and comfort amid the hustle and bustle of Midtown. St. Bart’s aspirations are lofty – they are anchored by its landmark building in a superb location, ready to serve prayerful people. Over these years at each of these locations, this community of faith has pursued excellence in ministry and offered radical hospitality to all.

St. Bart's mission is to comfort, challenge, and inspire a growing community of people in search of meaning and hope in their lives. It attempts to live its mission first and foremost through its radical welcome. This welcome begins the moment one ascends the front steps of St. Bart’s, with a warm greeting from its clergy and ushers. St. Bart's tries to find a place for everyone that gives them what they are seeking. It strives to know and learn from the community, to include them, to share what it has, and to welcome them to its table, without prejudice or barriers, to full immersion in the worship and practice of its community.

St. Bart's is a place that is ancient and new, a faith that it holds going back to Jesus, back to his spiritual ancestors, back to those who walked the earth and found holy ground. What it does is often based on ancient patterns—worship and music; loving service to the poor, the hurting, the lonely; working for justice and peace; lively, fearless education; and formation of minds and souls. St. Bart’s also expresses a faith  that is completely contemporary; engaged in the culture and the needs of the moment.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position, as is at least ten years of relevant development experience. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of St. Bartholomew’s Church and the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the position prospectus.
