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.
