St. John – Bandon – Part-time Vicar

St. John Church in Bandon, Oregon is seeking a loving and energetic Vicar with a good sense of humor and excellent communication, leadership and collaborative skills.  This person should be a good listener, open minded and compassionate, and share our aim to be inclusive and welcoming.  We desire a preacher who is well-versed in Scriptures and Episcopalian traditions, who is a good orator with an ability to preach from the heart.  We seek a person who is charismatic and community-minded who will help us attract new members and build the size and diversity of our congregation.  Our Vicar needs to be fiscally responsible, to encourage innovative outreach, and be able to delegate by supporting each parishioner’s talents and spiritual gifts.

St. John Church is in Bandon, on the south coast of Oregon.  Our location attracts visitors and newcomers for the breath-taking scenery, charming small-town atmosphere and recreational activities.  Bandon is home to world premier golf, hiking, fishing and beach combing.  Our weather is temperate and attracts people wanting to escape hot climates in the summer and cold climates in the winter.   We seek a part-time Vicar to continue our ministry to the community.  We are warm and friendly; we support each other; and intentionally welcome all that seek spiritual guidance and emotional and physical support.
