Job Description
The Diocese of Northern California is seeking priests who are grounded in the Christian faith, able to teach, preach, and lead congregations with excellence. We seek priests who are joyfully following the call to serve in our congregations and reach out to the wider community: connecting the church with those who seek to know Jesus Christ. It is an exciting time in the life of the church as we take the best of our Episcopal/Anglican traditions and walk with a new generation.

St. Augustine, Rocklin, is a vibrant church community looking to grow and share God’s love with our friends and neighbors. Our church is located in Rocklin, a city of 67,000, surrounded by housing communities with families of all types and ages. There are also active senior retirement communities nearby. We want to work with our new rector to reach out to these folks and invite them to worship with us and become members of our church family. We are 22 miles from Sacramento and 80 miles from Truckee and Lake Tahoe where winter and summer sports abound.

The culture of St. Augustine is anchored in being open to trying new ideas and programs as our church community and the community around us continue to change. We are committed to who we are becoming and to the changes that keep us vibrant and strong. The Holy Spirit will continue to lead us! As we look to the future, our primary goal is to ensure financial stability, to continue to offer beautiful music and worship, to fund programs for Christian formation for all ages and to continue and add to our many outreach projects. Coming together to worship in the Episcopal tradition and reaching out to serve our neighbors near and far are the things that have shaped this community of faith over the years. We are followers of Jesus. Our devotion to God, our love of God and our service to our neighbors…these represent the legacy of St. Augustine.
