Job Description
St. John’s Episcopal Church, located a few short miles from the ocean in Little Silver, NJ, is a warm welcoming community with involved parishioners and dedicated lay leadership. We are a faithful and hope-filled parish that values inclusivity and mutual respect. We put faith into action through a commitment to outreach on a local, national and global level. Rooted in the Anglican tradition, we enjoy a history of exploring new elements of worship and desire a priest who will bring creativity to our services. We seek an inspired homilist to connect with all ages of our multigenerational congregation.

We seek a priest to be actively present and accessible as the face of St. John’s in our parish, nursery school and community. Our leader must be inclusive, available to all and bring an enthusiasm that creates excitement and generates involvement. We are financially stable, yet we recognize the vital need to grow through increased evangelism and outreach. We look forward to a priest who can connect us with the wider community to bring this need to a reality.

Through the compassion of our priest, our parish will heal from the fragmentation of COVID and the feelings of abandonment experienced over the separation of our former rector. Our priest will re-energize us as we reopen, rebuild and grow. Under our priest’s leadership, we will welcome back members, engage parishioners who choose to remain home, develop programs that keep all members connected and build St. John’s for the future.
