Job Description
Iona-Hope is searching for a rector who will be our partner in ministry as we lean into our unfolding future.  We seek a pastoral leader, skilled in strategic leadership & change management, who is an engaging preacher & teacher, and who possesses the capacity to serve as a community catalyst.

We are a loving congregation where there are no strangers.  We strive to be a kind, affirming, fun, welcoming, and inclusive community of disciples doing good works.

We are blessed with a beautiful worship space & campus.  Outside the entrance to our church, we have a labyrinth that many walk and find to be a “journey” of peace, reflection, prayer, and discernment.

Iona-Hope received its name from our geographical area, and also for the many discussions relative to the hopes and dreams of this congregation. As the Isle of Iona is a place where one might be open to challenge and to the possibilities of exploring new horizons, so is Iona-Hope Episcopal Church.

Fort Myers is on the coast of Southwest Florida.  We are blessed with a little bit of everything:  arts & culture, waterways, beaches, and pristine natural preserves. We are close to many Gulf islands.  Fort Myers is the spring training home of the Boston Red Sox &the Minnesota Twins.  We enjoy the comfort of our Florida sub-tropical climate–days are full of warm tropical breezes, thanks to the Gulf of Mexico.

We invite you to visit our website (www.ionahope.org) to learn more about us.
