The Episcopal Church in Southeast Florida has recently issued an applicant call for the canon missioner position for Vitality and Transitions.

They announced that the application requirements should be sent to Rev. Canon Licia B. Affer, Canon to the Ordinary.

Such requirements include a cover letter, updated OTM profile, and resume.

The deadline for submitting applications will be on Jun. 1, 2023.

Canon Missioner Position

According to the Episcopal News Service, the Episcopal Church in Southeast Florida is now redeveloping sites and conducting a range of experiments with the assistance of a great group of dedicated members of the diocese as well as some competent consultants.

Thus, they seek a full-time canon missioner position for Vitality and Transitions for the diocese.

The canon missioner is responsible for overseeing the work of congregational development and evangelism. 

It reportedly includes providing wardens, vestries, diocesan committees, and other lay leaders with the knowledge, skills, and resources they need to effectively lead, cultivate, and grow dynamic congregations rooted and grounded in God's mission.

As the parish's transition period can be a fertile season, the missioner is also responsible for supervising and managing transition ministry for the diocese in conjunction with the canon to the ordinary. 

In addition, the canon for Hispanic ministries and the archdeacon for congregations of African descent provide financial assistance to the canon missioners as part of their respective ministries.

The diocese is reportedly searching for a priest ordained in the Episcopal Church and with at least four years of experience working in a Christian-focused congregation or faith-based organization, preferably one in which the Christian religion determines behavior and function.

Episcopal Church in Southeast Florida 

The Episcopal Church in Southeast Florida was established in 1969 and is still essential to the community's religious landscape.

It is led by Bishop Peter Eaton, committed to assisting the parishioners, congregational leaders, congregations, and schools within our diocese.

People reportedly discover that Episcopal congregations and schools share shared ideals and a welcoming atmosphere, regardless of where they come from or who they come with.

Moreover, people from all areas of life are encouraged to join the various congregations, schools, and communities that make up the Episcopal Church so that they might grow and deepen their relationships with Jesus Christ.

It is a place where people from all their groups, which are immensely different from one another, are accepted unconditionally and adored for the unique spirit they contribute to their religion.

They do this through their ministries and by becoming active in the larger community around them. Their goal is to make the world a more just place for everyone.

As mentioned, the Bishop's Office, found in Miami, Florida, acts as a hub through which numerous parishes, schools, and individuals can access various administrative and spiritual resources.

Those who are members of The Episcopal Church have the backing of the Bishop's Office whenever they face a difficult situation.

Furthermore, their staff leaders reportedly use their knowledge and experience to assist clergy, parishioners, and school administrators.
