Associate Rector for Christian Formation
This Associate will share in all the privileges of ordained ministry including preaching, teaching, pastoral care, and administration. He/she will assist the Rector in coordinating all Christian formation opportunities for adult parishioners, and will also oversee the ministry of the Director of Children’s Ministry and Director of Youth Ministry. This Associate will grow the ministries for all families at St. Mark’s with the goal of reaching a broad and substantial number of parishioners with children and/or youth and their friends. In addition to coordinating adult discipleship, the successful candidate will help develop and support a pathway of discipleship for our younger members by working with other staff and lay leaders to create a coordinated program designed to inspire and nurture Christian faith and service.
Founded in 1922, St. Mark’s is a community of faith anchored in traditional Anglican theology and liturgy as set forth in the Book of Common Prayer. It is one of the largest churches in the Diocese of Florida, with a school year ASA of ~350 and an annual budget of ~$1.5million. Known to many in the Jacksonville community because of the nearly fifty-year-old Day School (currently 334 students age 1 through 6th grade), this neighborhood church maintains a healthy balance of long-time generational members combined with those who are new to the Jacksonville community.
