Employer: Holy Cross Anglican, Lake Villa, Illinois
Closes: When position is filled
Holy Cross Anglican Church is a small congregation located in Lake Villa, Illinois, about equal distance between the cities of Chicago and Milwaukee. We are a conservative and traditional Anglo-Catholic parish with a theology in line with that of the worldwide Anglican Communion. We currently use the liturgy developed by the Anglican Communion in North America and are part of the Deanery of St. John the Baptist in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. We are seeking a part-time/bi-vocational rector who is an ordained Anglican priest (or a deacon who is close to ordination to the priesthood). We seek someone who is committed to evangelism and growth and has a church planter/builder mind-set. We want to share Jesus’ love, words, and reality with the surrounding community and build up our church family. Our ideal candidate has a deep commitment to the Lord and is eager to share that personal faith journey. We are an active and hard-working parish committed to outreach as well as spiritual growth. Word and sacrament are central to our parish life. We seek someone who celebrates the gifts of the laity and involves them in all aspects of church life. Prayer and healing are important ministries at Holy Cross, so we are looking for someone who would also value and contribute to those ministries.
