St. John’s & St. Anne’s
Job Location

Job Description
This is a unique opportunity for a creative, entrepreneurial and enthusiastic priest! St John’s is located in downtown Stockton and is shifting to become a “Mission Center” and St Anne’s is located in the suburbs of Stockton. Both congregations are devoted to mission, formation and discerning how to be a part of the Jesus Movement in San Joaquin.

Because this call is for an experiment with a developing Mission Center and a yoking of two congregations, we’re hoping that our new cleric will be:

–A person of deep and abiding faith: this clergy person will need to be able to navigate the complexities of partnership and change while being spiritually rooted in their call from God, and they need to be able to share that faith and love with others

–Loving: someone who respects diversity at all levels be it race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, age, and socio-economic status

–Entrepreneurial: have big dreams and big ideas for how St. John’s can develop into a Mission Center in the heart of downtown Stockton, a priest who is inspiring, creative, energetic and enthusiastic, as well as having financial management experience

–Collaborative: willing and able to work with our partners like Faith in the Valley, Puentes, Lincoln Elementary and others

–Bilingual: the Central Valley of California has a large Latino/Hispanic population and we need to be able to communicate with our brothers and sisters
