What do you want this person to do?
We are looking for a rector who is comfortable with strong, active, and confident people, who is energetic and personable and, above all, deeply spiritual. We are at a transition point and our new rector should be a strong leader and willing to become an active member in the community. We would like to grow from a pastoral to a program size congregation within the next five years. The candidate should be prepared to implement a plan for growth and build a commitment from the congregation to help reach its goal. Our rector must be able to relate to all age groups and be an encourager, administrator, counselor and confident to all. But, principally, we want someone who is a person of God, who will preach the Gospel, and inspire us and those in the community to follow in Jesus’ path.
