Director of Campus Ministry

St. Ignatius College Preparatory is hiring a Director of Campus Ministry.

St. Ignatius is a Catholic, Jesuit, coeducational school in San Francisco.

The Director of Campus Ministry is responsible for the spiritual formation of our students, consistent with the mission, ideals, and philosophical and theological vision of the school.

St. Ignatius is committed to cura personalis, care of the whole person. We encourage our students to become leaders who live their lives “for and with others.” As such, the Campus Ministry department is committed to student-centered and student-led formational programming that is culturally proficient. Campus Ministers accompany student leaders in ministering to our community. We strive for the intellectual, spiritual, physical, and emotional growth of all of our students. Through Campus Ministry programs, students form meaningful and lasting relationships with adults and peers, develop pride in being members of the St. Ignatius community, and cultivate their own gifts and talents in the service of others. An Ignatian approach to ministry stretches student with new experiences, while respecting each family’s role as the primary religious educators of their children.

The Director supervises and leads all Campus Ministry staff and programs, including the creation and responsible stewardship of $500,000 in annual budgets. The Director delegates appropriate responsibilities to adult campus ministers for the engaged implementation of:

·      student retreats (St. Anthony’s Plunge, Sophomore retreat, Kairos, and electives); including the training of student (InSIgnis) and adult team leaders for over 30 student retreats annually;

·      school-wide liturgies (including the Mass of the Holy Spirit, Baccalaureate mass, alumni, advancement, and parent liturgies) and quarterly prayer services;

·      opportunities for prayer and worship (including Friday Morning Liturgy, grade level reconciliation services, SI Unplugged, and music ministry) that require collaboration and coordination with clerical and lay partners.

The Director works closely with faculty, staff, and administration to ensure that the ministerial needs of the community are met. This position requires flexible hours that include nights and weekends. All members of the campus ministry team are expected to lead at least one of our annual two-week Immersion trips, as well as multiple overnight retreats in the course of the year.

A successful candidate for this position will:

·      have a Master’s degree or equivalent in Catholic Theology, Ministry or related field; as well as lived experience of the Catholic faith tradition;

have significant supervisory experience (preferred) in a Christian ministry context, including the ability to work collaboratively to solve problems, take initiative, and focus on solutions;

possess a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion;
·      support the academic and co-curricular life of the school community;
