The Regional Synod of New York

A Pastoral Call from the Reformed Dutch Church in Claverack, New York

The historic Reformed Church of Claverack, built in 1767, is nestled in the Hamlet of
Claverack between the Berkshire Mountains and the Hudson River in Columbia County, New
York. The cities of Hudson (10 minutes), Albany (30 minutes), Manhattan (2 hours away), and
Boston (3 hours away) are hubs of art, culture, and history. The nearby Catskill, Berkshire, and
Adirondack Mountains offer four seasons of outdoor activities.
Our congregation is spiritual, friendly, involved and supportive. We are prayerfully
searching for a pastor who is passionate about sharing and preaching God’s word; who is
committed to spiritual growth and intergenerational education; and who has a desire to be
involved in the life of our church and community.

The qualified candidate for this part time position will be an ordained pastor, or eligible
for ordination in either RCA, or one of our denominational partners. We offer a benefit and
expense package that can be negotiated; with a parsonage or with a housing allowance. Please
see Ministerial Minimum Compensation according to the R.C.A. and Columbia Greene Classis.
