Invitation for a New Rector Christ Church Anglican Mission Hanford/Lemoore California Full-Time Position Open
We are seeking an energetic, family-oriented, strong leader to help us go forward in doing the work of the Lord, through both ministry and administrative abilities.
The rector at Christ Church Anglican Mission (CCAM) will be someone who loves the Lord and loves us, not only for who we are, but also for who we can become.
As members of the Anglican Church in North America participating through the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin, we are grounded in the Authoritative Word of God. We are one of 32 congregations in the diocese. Our home is in the central part of the San Joaquin Valley, and we consider ourselves to be Valley Anglicans, serving members from several area towns. In comparison with many parts of California, the Hanford/Lemoore area in Kings County is very affordable.
Finding a new rector is crucial to lead us in fulfilling our mission – to make disciples of Jesus Christ, teach obedience to all that He commands, and share the richness of life within the Anglican tradition.
We can offer a financial package based on diocesan recommendations and candidate experience.
We seek a rector who:
Has a confident faith in Jesus Christ and an ability to joyfully share that relationship with others.
Is ordained or is prepared for ordination.
Is a “people person,” a “team builder” and a “self-starter” with a good work ethic.
Has a positive personality and the ability to maintain confidentiality.
Is administratively organized and possesses strong computer skills.
Has a vision for growth.
Is willing to learn Spanish or is fluent in that language.
Will get involved with the community.
