Employer: St. Thomas Anglican Church (Springfield, MO)
Closes: When position is filled
Established in 2008, St. Thomas Anglican Church is a small CANA East parish located in Springfield, Missouri. We are currently seeking a bi-vocational rector with a calling to expand God’s kingdom as a church builder after our previous priest moved on to a new position last year. St. Thomas’ congregation currently consists of a few dedicated families, all of whom have been with the church since its establishment. We all value Anglicanism for its emphasis on the authority of Scripture, its recognition of Divine catholic, universal order within God’s One Holy Apostolic Church and its emphasis on community worship for strengthening believers and pointing unbelievers to Christ. We are committed to practicing Christian worship in the Anglican tradition in Springfield. Our mission is to seek to extend the Kingdom of God by calling people to faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and to encourage, equip and educate disciples though the transforming work of the Holy Spirit in Word, Sacrament and Service.
We are looking for an energetic ordained Anglican priest with a deep love of God, a commitment to the authority of the scriptures, and a passion for Anglican worship. We currently meet Sunday mornings in the beautiful sanctuary of a local Lutheran church, which leaves us lots of room and opportunity for growth.
