St John's is not the usual church.  We have only two positions for staff members, and a lot of friends and Friends.

Our two staff members are the Program and Facility Director and the Vicar.

The Vicar, appointed by the Bishop of the Diocese of Ohio, the Rt. Rev. Mark Hollingsworth, Jr., is The Rev. Kelly Aughenbaugh M.Div, Kelly recently graduated from Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, CA and was ordained on May 28th, 2016. She grew up in Wooster, OH where she also attended the College of Wooster and majored in Geology. She loves basketball, going outside, reading a good book and spending time with loved ones. Kelly is excited to live and spend time in Cleveland and enjoys getting to know the amazing people, places and organizations in Ohio City!

We are searching for a Program and Facility Director!  

Prayers, positive vibes and overall good energy are welcomed this way as we continue our search. We'll post an update here when we have one. Thank you!

Among our friends are the Trustees of St John's.  The Trustees, appointed by the Bishop, are clergy and lay members of the Diocese of Ohio.

Other good friends are from the staff of the Diocese of Ohio:  The Rev. Canon Brad Purdom, Canon for Congregations, and his Executive Assistant, Antoinette Taylor, are always available to help us solve problems, consider new ideas, and pray for guidance and strength,

Among our neighborhood connections are the Friends of St John's.  Together with the Trustees, three members of the Friends form the Joint Council of St John's, which does strategic planning and fundraising.  Alex Frondorf, chair of the Friends, is a longtime resident of Ohio City.  Meredith Shoop, another Ohio City resident, and Stephen Harrison, all elected by the Friends, are also members of the Joint Council.
