Lay and Ordained Team Ministry

St James Episcopal Church, Marshall in southwest Minnesota is a small rural Shared Ministry parish, a congregation where everyone in the parish family is given the opportunity to find and do the ministry to which God is calling them.

The call to local lay and ordained ministry is led by a Commissioned and Ordained Team that provides a sharing and caring leadership that Welcomes All to the Table.
