Seeking Our Next Rector

Our mission is to allow the Holy Spirit, in the light of God's wisdom and grace, to discern a Rector who hears a call to join our community

and guide our Parish family in the years to come.


The Rector Search Committee is delighted to share the All Saints’ Episcopal Church Parish Profile and official Rector Search posting was published by the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona. It is accessible to prospective candidates and Episcopal clergy across the U.S. The Diocese will accept applications through July 19, 2021. Once the application window is complete, the review process of qualified candidates will begin.


To Our Next Rector, 

We are searching for a Rector who can continue to build on the ministries and great work of this dynamic parish. Can this be your next call? Located in the heart of a beautiful and historic residential neighborhood near downtown Phoenix, the capital city of Arizona, All Saints’ Parish includes a diverse, committed community of parishioners, a renowned music program, and thriving Episcopal day school. Our mission to pray, learn, serve, and connect encourages us to live out our lives actively in the world around us. All Saints’ parishioners are engaged in many ministries, not only within the parish family but through meaningful partnerships with a variety of community organizations and efforts including NourishPHX, the Perryville Prison ministry and St. Paul’s Church and School in Haiti. We invite you to view both our informational brochure and Parish Profile and consider All Saints’ as your next call.


Faithfully,

The All Saints’ Rector Search Committee

Ten Reasons Why All Saints' 

is a Great Place to Serve

  1.  It’s gratifying to serve with energetic, supportive, fun colleagues. Our staff of 12, including 3 full-time priests, works collaboratively towards our common mission. God is doing great things at and through All Saints’, and it is fulfilling to be part of something meaningful.
  2. Between our church and day school, there is never a dull moment at All Saints’, with lots of activity during the school and program year on our campus and in the community.
  3. We have some of the best traditional liturgy and music in The Episcopal Church. We worship from the Book of Common Prayer an average of 14 times per week, including day school chapels, Evening Prayer, monthly choral Evensong, weddings and funerals.
  4. All Saints’ is a diverse congregation: Republicans and Democrats, young families and seniors, gays and lesbians, singles, wealthy and poor, from different backgrounds. We are united in a centrist, non-partisan, healthy community of respect that follows Jesus Christ in the Episcopal tradition as we pray, learn, serve and connect with God and each other.
  5. We take our spiritual formation seriously. Our members of all ages appreciate learning about the faith. We have a solid foundation, but seek to grow in numbers and discipleship.
  6. We are committed to serving those in need in our city and beyond. We have active partnerships with many local agencies, including Nourish Phoenix / ICM Food and Clothing Bank, Feed My Starving Children, André House, and Saint Mary's Food Bank, and internationally with Saint Paul’s Church and School in Haiti.
  7. The weather. Phoenix has more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Sure, the summer is hot, but the late fall, winter, and spring are amazing.
  8. Phoenix has all the amenities of a big city: music and the arts, sports teams, outdoor activities, and great cuisine. The Southwest is a rich and unique landscape and culture.
  9. Phoenix is affordable for a major city.
  10. Have we mentioned the sunshine?

The Process

In mid-2020, a Rector Search Committee (RSC) was formed to begin the work of calling the fifth Rector in All Saints’ Episcopal Church’s 65-year history.

Since its formation, the Committee has worked prayerfully and diligently to meet the Vestry’s charge to present two to three candidates to the Vestry for final consideration, “any one of whom the committee could support as Rector.” Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the full committee has faithfully attended monthly virtual meetings and participated in regular sub-committee meetings to fulfill their designated roles. 


Sub-committees overseeing the three important phases of the Rector Search are as follows:


The Parish Profile Committee, chaired by Tim Haskins

The Recruiting Committee, chaired by Jeff Ellish

The Transition Committee, chaired by Juliaette Chamberlain
