Letter to Applicants

Our church is seeking an ordained ANiC Priest to envision, enable and inspire us for the next season in our journey, walking in step with the Holy Spirit, and helping us deepen our relationship with God. Our new Rector, as one who envisions and equips, will take us forward together under God’s leading and power. To enable us, the Rector will see each individual’s gifting and potential, then release and disciple them as they grow. We also need a team builder and guide. The team builder must have the confidence to lead, yet have the humility to listen. He or she will help guide us as we engage with our community and the prevailing culture. We don’t expect our Rector to have all the answers, but we would love you to help us find them together. As our Rector, you will be working with an already collaborative leadership team of two priests, one deacon, a music director, a women’s ministry coordinator, the parish administrators, and a host of amazing volunteers. This will be a half-time (20 hours per week) appointment. Your time would consist of prayer and preparation for Sunday services, pastoral calls and visits, consulting with your leadership team and envisioning the church’s future with your team and Parish Council, connecting missionally with the community, and spending time with your Spiritual Director (because we believe in your spiritual health). If you feel called to such a ministry, we pray that you will apply and we look forward to hearing from you. God bless you as you discern your calling.
