Job Description
Bishop Rice and the Diocesan Council believe in the potential of St. John’s as a Mission Center in Stockton and the Northern Deanery. St. Anne’s is the other Episcopal community in Stockton. St. Anne’s is a thriving worshipping community, but because of location, does not have the same visibility in the community as St. John’s. It is our dream to have the Priest share liturgical and pastoral responsibility between the two congregations when the clergy person retires from St. Anne’s (2020), and encourage and develop mission and ministry opportunities for St. Anne’s and St. John’s to partner in, using the St. John’s facility.
It is the hope of the Bishop and Diocesan Council that under the guidance of the new Priest-in-Charge, the two congregations will be partners in all aspects of Christian life.

Because this call is for an experiment with a developing Mission Center, we’re hoping that our new Priest-in-Charge will be:

–Entrepreneurial: have big dreams and big ideas for how we can develop into a Mission Center in the heart of downtown Stockton, a priest who is inspiring, creative, energetic and enthusiastic, as well as having financial management experience

–Bilingual: the Central Valley of California has a large Latino/Hispanic population and we need to be able to communicate with our brothers and sisters

–Collaborative: willing and able to work with our ministry partners, St. Anne’s and others

–A person of deep and abiding faith: this clergy person will need to be able to navigate the complexities of partnership and change while being rooted in their call from God, and they need to be able to share that faith and love with others

–Loving: someone who respects diversity at all levels be it race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, and socio-economic status
