What do you want this person to do?
We are looking for someone with their own beautiful juxtapositions, someone rooted in the past but looking toward the future, someone who can lead a lovingly feisty community to grow in a way that feels organic even when it doesn’t feel comfortable.

We are looking for someone who wants to preserve and enrich our strong high church liturgical
tradition. We are looking for someone who is a collaborative leader who can harness the energy of many passionate subcommunities to make our parish thrive.

We are looking for someone whose sermons inspire and educate, and someone whose arms can embrace the entire parish in pastoral care.

Liturgy at St. Luke’s draws upon the Anglo-Catholic tradition. Historically there have been three services each Sunday at 8, 9, and 11 in the morning.

In summary, St. Luke’s Los Gatos is looking for a rector who, in addition to appreciating a traditional approach to liturgy, also
• understands the parish as an organization and as part of the community of Los Gatos;
• has strong twenty-first century leadership skills, meaning he/she values and practices critical thinking, creativity in solving problems, collaboration, and excellent communication;
• is skilled in, and comfortable using, shared leadership;
• has a teaching and learning orientation along with a strong pastoral presence.
