||St. Paul’s Church is an intimate, loving parish searching for our next rector. We are a congregation with a small group of faithful followers comprised of long-time members and young families in a changing community just west of the high growth Florida communities of St. Augustine and Crescent Beach. We have been located in Putnam County on the scenic east bank of the St. Johns River since 1880, and we are interested in embracing the changes within our community to the continuation of our witness and ministries in the area.
The ideal candidate will have a minimum of 6+ years of experience in church ministry and a continuing passion for new opportunities to share God’s grace. The rector will enjoy being with all kinds of people and ideally has a loving and outgoing personality that attracts interested newcomers to our parish. The rector will be skilled at preparing an inspirational sermon and relish teaching the Word of God. We seek a leader who will be respected in our community while helping us develop our gifts, ministry, and service. We hope to attract a faithful priest who will shepherd us, mirroring the Savior’s compassion, while challenging us to expand our circle of care and concern and leading by example. This position is part-time but may expand back to its customary full-time status as we evolve with the changing community around us. The salary and benefits package will be negotiated and includes a handsome two story 3-bed, 2-bath Rectory overlooking the St. Johns River.
