Seeking an Associate Rector

St. John’s is searching for an Associate Rector to join our team led by our new rector, the Rev. Lonnie Lacy. This individual will work closely with the rector and assume responsibility for pastoral care, outreach, and parish life ministries. This is a position that requires a unique set of skills: an inward focus on parishioners and their families at challenging times, and an outward focus to serve, welcome, embrace, and build community with our parish body and those around us. Our Associate Rector will also participate in the full range of preaching and sacraments.

We invite you to download our position description for more information about St. John’s, including who we are and who we are seeking in our search for an Associate Rector.

St. John’s began as a frontier church in 1829. We are now a congregation of approximately 1,500 members with average Sunday attendance of approximately 350. We are an active congregation offering varied programs and participating in a multitude of outreach efforts. We strive in all that we do to live our core values: worship, compassion, openness, community, and stewardship. Our church mission “to love and serve Christ and our neighbors in Tallahassee and the world.”

St. John’s is located in Tallahassee, FL, the state capital. Tallahassee and Leon County are located in the Big Bend region of north Florida with a population of nearly 200,000.
