Dear Friend in Christ:
The members of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Phoenixville greet you and invite you to read our profile in the same spirit in which we have written it: with prayerfulness, hopefulness and discerning hearts.
We are searching for a full-time rector who will thrive in our growing community of souls who love elegant liturgy and beautiful music, who serve people in our neighborhood and far beyond, who encompass parishioners of many ages, races, points of view and financial status, who are with and without homes or families, in various states of personal and spiritual development, but all with an abiding love of Jesus Christ, alive and at work in the world.
Be assured of our prayers for you and your discernment process as you encounter us in this profile of our beloved parish, and as you ask yourself if we are the flock that will inspire the full range of your pastoral gifts. Thank you for your visit to us, and please know how sincerely we trust our benevolent God to lead us all to new and more abundant life, even in the midst of change.
In faith, hope, and charity,
St. Peter’s Discernment Committee
on behalf of the Vestry and our
brothers and sisters in the parish.
People interested in more information regarding how to apply for the position of Rector are invited to contact the Discernment Committee at the following email: StPetersPvilleCall@gmail.com
Thank you for your interest. Because our work of discernment is well underway, we are no longer receiving new applications. God bless you in your ministry.
The discernment process for St. Peter’s has begun the evaluation phase. There was much interest in our church, and we received a number of quality application packages. We are just beginning the process of reviewing the candidates, and expect this to continue for a number of weeks.
St. Peter’s is now receiving application packages from candidates interested in being our next Rector. The Discernment Committee is preparing to review and evaluate these candidates after the application period closes on May 1. Review and evaluation will be followed by reference checks and telephone interviews, leading up to select personal interviews that will include participation by the vestry.
