Saint John's Church is searching for a new rector
Over a century old and located in the heart of Memphis, Saint John's has a congregation of about 880 baptized persons. We appreciate our rich history and life-long members and value the life and energy provided by the recent influx of young families. Saint John's is seeking a priest who is an inspiring, scripturally-based preacher and teacher who can motivate its members to more mature relationships with Christ.
Our mid-south community has a population of 650,000 within the City of Memphis and more than one million people in the metropolitian area. Saint John's is centrally located near where "Midtown" ends and where "East Memphis" begins. Its neighborhood, while largely residential, also encompasses the University of Memphis, nearby shopping centers, schools and museums.
Our parish is a community of Christians who desire is to bear witness to God's love and presence in the world.
