Job Description
We seek a Priest in Charge who embraces our values and commitments for St. Augustine’s, specifically:
We highly value pastoral care from our priest, and we have lay ministers who are also passionate about providing pastoral care. We expect the rector to extend spiritual support to parishioners who are sick or shut-in or who face personal or family crises.

We are eager to attract more and young/younger members to add energy and vitality to our ministries. New ideas, such as the successful first Sunday of the month Jazz Service, are welcome.

Every organization encounters issues and problems with programming, finances, staffing, physical plant or change. Given the diversity of our congregation and parishioners’ dedication to the health and longevity of the parish and its traditions, differences of opinion arise about how to address such issues. We would like to develop healthy processes to move through these issues with more ease and grace.

We are deeply committed to the financial health and stability of the parish now and for the future. We are working to establish new sources of revenue in addition to adding pledge income by increasing membership. Our strong commitment to stewardship extends to preserving and enhancing our historic buildings to further the success of our ministries.

We seek to strengthen our ties to the community, and to contribute to the health and well-being of our neighborhood. We want to build on our foundation to have a greater impact on our neighborhood and beyond. We look to our rector to provide leadership in the growth and development of connections with Oakland civic leaders and clergy.
