Job Location

Job Description
Saint Paul’s/San Pablo, a diverse, inclusive, and inviting Christian community, seeks a spiritual leader fully bilingual (speaking, writing, and reading) in English and Spanish with a thorough understanding and appreciation of our bicultural congregation (Latino, primarily Mexican, and Anglo), so he/she can help us grow, live, work and worship together.

While we recognize that together we face significant challenges, we also believe that our merger process will serve us, and our broader community, as a model celebrating diversity and love for all people. As larger local and global communities have become increasingly divided, Saint Paul’s/San Pablo is working diligently towards unity as we merge into one inclusive and culturally diverse, Christ-centered community. We believe we are a congregation ready to make the changes necessary for growth. We ask our new rector to join and lead us in this process of unification. For success in our merger, we ask for your help in finding new ways to reach out and meaningfully connect with our combined parish and our community at large.

Important to our unification process, the congregations have defined our values centered on faith, family, and community. To succeed in fulfilling these values, our new rector must be dedicated to work with us as we firmly establish and enhance our values. Our entire parish has acknowledged our two most significant challenges: unity and growth. Our new rector must be experienced in addressing both those challenges.

Our new rector must also have experience in engaging, encouraging, and working with his/her congregation. As a parish family, we pledge to support and nurture our new rector and his/her family as we work together to share our Christian faith through worship, fellowship, and action. Our new rector’s ministerial experience is foremost on our minds as we seek our new partner in faith. In this partnership, we pledge to support our rector by providing administrative assistance so that he/she can focus on ministry, not management. As part of our spiritual growth, we find tremendous joy and comfort in the teachings of Christ, our Episcopal liturgy, the inclusiveness of our Church and our worship tradition. It is our desire that our new rector adds to our spiritual growth with well-developed sermons to teach, inspire and challenge us. He/she will also be tasked with engaging outside the Sunday worship environment as he/she helps us live Christ-centered values lives among the members of our congregation, within our church neighborhood, and our Salinas community
