There are 178 assigned pastors on this megaregion.
They host a median worship attendance of 58, which is fairly consistent with the Great Lakes and Southern California megaregions.
There are 25 churches without an assigned pastor, only six of them are ethnic churches.
Pastoral tenure again creates a stir in the findings. The median tenure is six years, assigned since 2009. There are 36 pastors that have been in place for more than 12 years.
28% reflects the percentage of pastors assigned to the same church for more than ten years or less than three years. Less than half the pastors are in the middle range between four to nine years.
Interestingly enough, the average pastor tenure for churches over 200 in worship attendance is 8.6 years.
