Holy Spirit Anglican Church, Prescott Valley, AZ is seeking a rector that will help our Parish in its mission task of advancing the Great Commission in our town while continuing our commitment to the liturgical use of the Book of Common Prayer and the traditional Anglican as well as modern hymnody. Candidates should be ordained, Anglican-trained priests and provide evidence of ability to “grow” the congregation. The successful candidate will demonstrate a desire to facilitate the mission within the congregation and provide evidence of ability to lead in areas of evangelism, discipleship, and a loving fellowship with the congregation. The candidate should be able to help parishioners identify and use their spiritual gifts and talents in these endeavors.
We are a small urban church planted a few years ago by a small number of original members. Due to the retirement of our parish priest, Sunday services and bible study in a rented local church fellowship hall have been temporarily suspended pending engagement of a new rector. Some members presently meet on a weekday in a home with Eucharist provided by a local Anglican priest from another ministry. Due to our small size, we presently can compensate a retired or working priest on a stipend basis, pending our ability to grow our parish to a size that would permit a full salary.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, resume including academic and seminary training, a statement of pastoral philosophy and contact information for three references to Sue Piper, firstname.lastname@example.org.
