  2. Hi, Has there been any research into how many congregations are led by Commissioned Ruling Elders and how that has changed over time. Thanks for your help

  3. Thanks, Twyla for your question, which is a very good question, one I asked too, 23 years ago when I began working with this data. These churches are churches that we count, even though they don't have any members, because PCUSA still owns the property, or they may exist, because they haven't officially closed or filed the paperwork. Hope that helps! Thanks for your interest.

  4. I'm curious. On Comparative Statistics 2010 - Table 15 there is a footnote that indicates there are 24 churches with no members. How can there be a church with no members? Isn't a church made up of the members? I am both puzzled and troubled by this notation and have seen it often enough on statistics reports to finally request clarification as to the meaning.
