Organization Description: At the Direct Action and Research Training Center (DART), we believe powerlessness is the root cause of community problems.  We work to unite people of faith, because when we organize together, we can ensure that our values for justice and fairness are alive in our cities.  Our national network of 20 justice ministry organizations brings together congregations across racial, religious and socioeconomic lines to pursue justice in their communities. Unlike charities and direct service providers, DART organizations seek long-term, sustainable improvements at a systemic level. DART organizations regularly conduct direct action assemblies in which thousands of people from a cross-section of faith traditions publicly hold decision-makers accountable on local justice issues.  DART organizations' recent victories include: multi-million dollar investments in affordable housing, increased access to primary health and dental care, statewide legislation to rein in the payday loan industry, implementation of restorative justice practices in public schools, and the expansion of drug treatment programs to reduce criminal recidivism.

Pastor, Norris Religious Fellowship, Norris, TN

The Norris Religious Fellowship is seeking a new spiritual leader to join our loving, caring, worshiping church family.  Our church was established in 1933 by the residents of Norris, Tennessee. Norris was a new planned community created by the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to house the workers who built the first TVA dam, as well as their families, and to serve as a model community.  Since this was a new community the residents all moved to the area from somewhere else, bringing their various religious experiences with them. Thus the Fellowship was founded as an interdenominational Christian church, which it remains to this day. The Fellowship is affiliated with the International Council of Community Churches, and is graced with over 100 members, along with children and non-member friends.  We are a tithing church, meaning that 10% of our annual budget is donated to various charitable organizations.   Over the years our ministers have come from many denominations, including Congregational, American Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Church of God, United Church of Christ and Unitarian.  It is required that a candidate for minister be a graduate of an accredited Christian seminary.  A  passion for counseling the ill and grieving is desirable.  The position will be available starting in March of 2016, as the minister who has led us for the past seventeen years has decided to retire in February of 2016.  Compensation for the position is negotiable, commensurate with training and experience.  One member, who has been a part of our church for seventy-nine years says he prays, “God, please send us the person that we need and that needs us.”  If you feel that you might be that person please send inquiries to:
