Clergy Leadership Resource Reallocation Strategy Effective: 10/1/2019

Dear friends, 

We are a small diocese in terms of both the number of worshipping communities and the average size of our congregations. More than 75% of our congregations are Family Size churches with Average Sunday Attendance of less than 75.
