Closes: When position is filled
The Anglican Church of St. Charles, located in Poulsbo, Washington, is seeking a full-time Rector to lead our parish in the fulfillment of our Lord’s Great Commandment and His Great Commission, and to help our congregation lead our spiritual lives in such a way that others will be drawn to Christ in our midst, and want be a part of what we share with Him. We seek a dynamic, personable pastor, leader and teacher to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to help us live out the mission of St. Charles, and to lead our parish and ministries with energy and enthusiasm.
Our Draft Mission: St. Charles embraces all who seek Christ1; we nurture loving relationships with God and one another2, remaining faithful to Anglican worship rites and heritage, as we serve a world in need3. 1 - Acts 10:34,35 2 – John 15:9-17 3 – 1 Peter 4:11
Motto: With Christ, we embrace, nurture, and serve.
We are a spirit-led, prayerful congregation, firmly grounded in scripture and Anglican tradition. Our ASA for three services, one informal Saturday service and two Sunday services (one traditional and one contemporary), is about 70-80. We glorify the Lord and strive to fulfill his Great Commandment and Commission.
St. Charles has had a presence in Kitsap County that goes back to the mid 1930’s in one form or another. We became the Anglican Church of St. Charles (formerly St. Charles Episcopal Church) in 2003, moved from our fully-owned campus (built in 1965) to our present location in 2014, a leased commercial space in downtown Poulsbo. We are prayerfully discerning what will be next for a permanent home.
With the retirement of our present rector, we seek a minister who will find joy and energy in being a pastor to St. Charles parishioners and to our community. Our next rector will continue to equip the saints for ministry, further in us the gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to expand upon the successes of our past and seek the vision God has for our future.
