Job Description
St. Peter’s at the Light Church is located in Barnegat Light on the northern tip of Long Beach Island, an 18 mile barrier island off the coast of southern New Jersey.

Our Parish has a long and rich history dating to 1890, achieving Mission status in 1992 and receiving our first on-site Vicar in 2004. Included in our parish grounds is a historic Church Sanctuary Building with recently renovated sanctuary and organ alcove, beautiful gardens, parish hall and an adjacent vicarage built in 2006. We are seeking an inspirational spiritual leader focused on the nurture and care of the congregation and community. We seek a vicar who is welcoming, easy to talk with, willing to be visible, engaged in the community and has sensitivity towards differing views. We are desirous for sermons that will guide us in our faith so that we are equipped to face the challenges often posed by current events, translating the Lord’s message to relate to today’s society. A person can be faithful to the Biblical message and teaching in such a way as to invite people to engage in reflection and introspection to be more faithful disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our vicar needs to be an effective administrator and financial manager with knowledge of and commitment to comply with the Episcopal Church Canon and the Manual of Business Methods on Church Affairs, while respecting the
responsibilities and ministries of others at St. Peter’s. We are a congregation composed of residents of the island, the local mainland and summer visitors, that values spirituality, inclusiveness and caring for one another.
