Job Summary:

Saint John’s Anglican Church is a small but committed group, with about a dozen regular worshippers each Sunday. Our members come from various backgrounds, and we are united by our commitment to Anglican theology and ways of worshiping. We love singing, we love liturgy, we embrace the arts, and we revel in the contours of the church year. Our mission field is a vibrant, sprawling landscape of nearly 3 million people. Pick a demographic, and you can find it in the East Bay—from enclaves of wealth and privilege to neighborhoods where chronic underemployment, racial injustice, and violence have been increasing. There is great energy here—as well as great hunger for truth, beauty, and meaning. We need help identifying the best ways to connect with the community around us, and how to apply our gifts in ways that lead people to know Christ. We seek a church planter and shepherd, a visionary and an entrepreneur. We can offer prayer, hands willing to work, a modest stipend and basic benefits—but not a full salary at this point. We’ve got a great place to worship right now—the beautiful chapel at Santa Maria Catholic Church in Orinda—but we’re willing to move. Are you the church planter God is calling to help us? See a longer description of the opportunity on our website. Think and pray about it. Then give us a call—we’d love to tell you more.
