Job Description
Established in 1892 and located in the beautiful Central Coast area of Lompoc, CA, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church seeks a full-time Rector to guide us, walk alongside us, empower our spiritual growth and ministries, and shepherd us in all the seasons of our lives.

We desire a Rector who will support and nurture St. Mary’s post pandemic. The Rector we seek would promote a heathy balance between the traditions we value and the needs of a younger, more modern congregation with the health and energy to GROW this flock.

We seek someone:

  • to join us in our outreach to the growing Hispanic demographic
  • whose preaching has the capacity to inspire and connect us to God’s word in the twenty-first century
  • who can be an educator, provide opportunities for spiritual development through study of the scriptures, creating a deeper relationship with God
  • who is an excellent listener, has a healthy tolerance for differing opinions and who cares for each member of the flock
  • who is a strong, yet collaborative leader, works with the Vestry and lay leaders, knows how to motivate people to accomplish tasks and transparent in decision-making
  • who is a Shepherd, willing to provide an inclusive, diverse, peaceful, loving, active, and fun place for members, new families, and visitors

We’ve emerged from the pandemic as a church in transition – a tabula rasa for a creative, optimistic priest. If God leads you to our door, you will find a flock ready to love and support you as our Shepherd.
