Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a Rector for this Parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Our ideal Rector should inspire us as a preacher, be comfortable leading by example and be grounded in pastoral care. He or she should be passionate about welcoming families and developing our youth. Our Rector will be fully supported by the parish to be part of the Sparta community and help us grow in membership, outreach and fellowship. Our Rector is skilled in Church and Vestry administration; verbal, electronic and written communications; and will take their faith seriously, with him or herself humbly less so.
