… and welcome. We’re thrilled and grateful that you’ve found and are considering joining us at Christ Church, Kalispell! Christ Church Episcopal (CCE) is excited and eager to learn about you and explore the opportunity of working together. There are so many changes currently going on all over the world and here at home too. CCE is a spirited community, always open to the challenges set before us. We are looking for an energetic and dynamic leader to accompany us into the future.
If you are not familiar with Montana, you are in for a real treat! The Flathead Valley is tucked into the mountains, 30 miles from Glacier National Park. We tick most of the boxes for the outdoor enthusiast—hiking, biking, skiing, and hunting, etc. We are a short drive from Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi, great for boating, fishing, kayaking and more!
Check out our profile, we are looking forward to sharing all the great things in the Flathead, the only thing that’s missing is you!

Come grow with us!
Our small city has grown 25% in the last decade, as people migrate from urban areas and seek out places of beauty to work remotely. This comes with some real growing pains and some opportunities.
We seek to grow and engage in significant ministry that makes us indispensable for the health and welfare of the Flathead Valley.
Kalispell is the regional hub of Northwestern Montana. As such, we house a 288-bed research hospital, the Montana Children’s Hospital, many shopping options, a community college, and an international airport.
Additionally, we boast the launch point for Glacier National Park and all the eco-adventure you could ask for. If culture is more your bag, there’s always the Hockaday Museum of Art, the NW Montana History Museum, the Glacier Symphony and Chorale, and a historic downtown district.
