|St. James Episcopal Church|
|Mesilla Park, NM|
|St. James’ Church, Las Cruces, seeks a rector for the oldest Episcopal congregation in southern New Mexico (1875) with a long record of service in the area. Our present church was consecrated in 1912 and built in the style of a traditional English parish. Our beautiful sanctuary and facilities host a number of events and local organizations. The parish recently restored the original building, now the parish hall. We support three ecumenical ministries: a detention center for youth, a soup kitchen, and a homeless shelter.
We seek a rector who is empathetic and approachable, with a sense of humor; an engaging and effective preacher of the gospel; a person with deep spiritual roots who can encourage religious practice in others. We need a rector with a heart for pastoral care and an ability to minister to parishioners at all stages of life. We ask our rector to help us find new ways to reach into the community, and to make a long-term commitment to our parish, as we commit to him or her our prayers and support. For more information, including proposed compensation, please see www.stjameslascruces.org.
