Church of the Redeemer in Sarasota, Florida’s search process for its next rector is underway, as our previous rector retired after 26 years of successful ministry. 

Redeemer, a long-standing Anglo-Catholic congregation, is the largest parish in the Diocese of Southwest Florida.  Experience with serving at a large parish similar in size to Church of the Redeemer (2300 Members) is a must. 

We seek a priest with biblical preaching and teaching, and a traditional approach to liturgy.  Redeemer’s next rector will have demonstrated previous success in stewardship and fundraising in both operations and capital projects. Redeemer has recently completed phase one of a multi-phase, multi-million-dollar capital expansion.

Our next rector will have strong administrative skills and be motivated to continue our expansion and growth!

Our next rector will be a person of integrity, strong and deep spirituality, passionate in pastoral care, and model daily prayer in their life. This person must be able to motivate a large staff and our many parishioners in their spiritual lives. Our next rector must be an effective preacher to all ages and will support our strong Christian formation programs.

We are searching for someone very approachable to all ages and dedicated to pastoral care. Being a downtown church, it is vital that our new rector continue with our outreach programs in the community and the world. Please visit our website for more information:
