St. Ignatius of Antioch
Antioch, IL
Job Description
St. Ignatius of Antioch is in search of a full-time rector.  Each Sunday, the congregation worships using Rite II liturgies during two services with an average Sunday attendance in the 40’s, and several attendees via the hybrid Zoom service. The main focus of the congregation is outreach, with the focus on their resale shop. The resale shop is served by volunteers from within the congregation and from the community, enhancing the bond between those worshipping members and the wider Antioch area. Fellowship and formation are other key areas of focus for the members of St. Ignatius, who seek to learn and grow together, while also seeking to grow the congregation. The next rector of St. Ignatius should value tradition, and lead the congregation to new ideas and purposes while helping to recruit new and diverse members.
