|St John’s Episcopal Church in Tampa has re-opened the search for our next rector.
St John’s is nestled in the historic Hyde Park of South Tampa. Our brick church on Orleans Avenue serves as the cornerstone of St John’s, with a view of beautiful Bayshore Boulevard and Hillsborough Bay. Our properties include seven buildings, all within close proximity to vibrant downtown Tampa.
In St John’s nearly 109 years, we have been blessed with gifted leadership, caring people, and a loving community that continues to grow. We are a strong, vibrant, and healthy congregation. Our next rector will guide us into our next exciting season of shared life and ministry.
We seek a priest who: values our liturgical, worship, and musical traditions and will ensure those traditions remain vibrant and relevant; is an articulate and compelling preacher and teacher; is a strong spiritual leader; recognizes the importance our Parish Day School and the unique ministry opportunities our school provides; is warm, compassionate, and accessible to all parishioners; supports pastoral care and our desire reach out to those around us; possesses strong social and communication skills; and is a good steward and possesses the administrative experience to manage our complex institution.
Tampa, located in fast-growing Hillsborough County, boasts a population of nearly 400,000—and more than 3.1 million in the greater Tampa Bay metro area. Tampa is an eclectic city with strong Latin heritage and other rich cultural influences. Our sunny, tropical weather, moderated by the surrounding water, allows for ample year-round outdoor activities. As well, Tampa is home to professional sports teams and a dynamic arts scene.
