Position: Assistant Rector
Good Shepherd Church and School is a program-size Episcopal congregation located in Tequesta, Florida. We have average Sunday attendance of 300, with approximately 60-70 active children and youth. Several young families have joined the church in recent years and continued growth of this demographic is a central component of our ministry. Our parish day-school is on the same property as the church and has an enrollment of 120 students (Pre-K through 5th grade).
We are currently launching a strategic plan which has been developed over the past year to help us to define goals and establish initiatives so that we may grow into a parish that best serves Christ in our community. We employ one full-time Rector and are blessed with seasonal and part-time retired clergy for supply, but we wish to add the consistent clergy support of an Assistant Rector into all aspects of parish life.
The Assistant Rector will work under the supervision and direction of the Rector. We are seeking a priest and pastor to assist with the worship and sacramental life of our congregation. Specifically, our new priest will be focused on the continued development of our children, youth, and family programming, and will help foster a deeper relationship between our church and school communities. We are looking for a candidate who is excited about developing a more intentional connection between our congregation and the local community in Tequesta and Jupiter. The position of Assistant Rector at Good Shepherd is as much an opportunity for personal learning and spiritual growth as it is for teaching and shepherding our flock!
We are looking for:
