Episcopal Churchwide Trends: Clergy, Membership, and Transitions

Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick encourages clergy, lay leaders, and all interested, to attend this special Province VIII online webinar on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia. The session will take place from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM (HST).

Are you wondering about declining church attendance, changes in pledging, or the challenges with finding clergy to fill the open calls in your communities? To plan for and adapt to this current and exciting moment in the church’s life, we must have a complete picture of the trends driving the changes we see across the church. Join Episcopal clergy and lay leaders from across Province VIII to dig into the 2022 Parochial Report data about trends across the Episcopal Church, including membership and giving numbers and the state of the clergy. We will engage the emerging nature of ministry models, clergy trends, and search and call contexts. We’ll also explore possible opportunities as we move forward into a future that looks very different from what many of us have known.

The Rev. Dr. Molly F. James from the General Convention Office, Dr. Matthew J. Price from the Research Department of the Church Pension Group, and the Rev. Meghan F. Froehlich from The Episcopal Church’s Office for Transition Ministry will offer current information and guide us in this discussion.
