Key Explanations:

0 = Not calling at this time: These congregations are stable, generally served by a part-time interim minister, and are engaging in longer-term self study to determine their future.

1 = In study: These congregations are expecting to call a pastor and are preparing their Mission Site Profile in anticipation of receiving names. This often takes many months.

2 = Ready for or Interviewing: These congregations have completed their Mission Site Profiles and are either ready to receive candidates or in the middle of interviews.

3 = Voting: These congregations have narrowed their search to a final candidate and are planning to conduct a vote.

The following is a list of congregations looking to fill rostered lay leader positions as we know them now.  If you are interested in being considered for any of these parishes, please notify our office as soon as possible.  You may be sure that careful consideration will be given to your interest.
