Job Description
As the Diocese of El Camino Real we feel called to search and grow deeply in our faith as a diocese and to be a voice of change and challenge to the broader church as we seek new ways to reach all those searching for some greater purpose in their lives.

Our next bishop will be both leader and companion on this journey of faith and collaboration.

They will be relational in their approach, grounded in their faith, prayerful and humble. They will be a visionary in collaboration with visionaries—confident enough to listen, and collaborative in creatively realizing our common dreams.
They will be a voice in the public square on social justice issues, willing to speak truth to power and using their position to draw attention to the need for change. They will be a pastor, confidante, and support to our clergy, champions of diaconal and lay ministries, and a reconciling presence in parish crises.

They will be able to balance continuity and change, helping us to build the new while respecting the old (which means, of course, they’ll understand system transformation too). They will have a strong belief in and practice of multicultural inclusion as well as a working proficiency in Spanish or an honest desire to grow in learning Spanish or other languages. They will have a heart for ministry – both for and in the world–and a willingness to learn and grow with us as we learn and grow into the future. We are a diocese living into the future church that doesn’t yet exist, seeking a bishop to partner with us.
