 Pastor's Survey II

From 1992, we need an update! 

We had hundreds of responses to survey 1, thank-you! 
 
Now, can you help us with the Pastor's Survey, Part 2 (Part 3 will be sent out next week)
 
Into Thy Word and our ministry partner, The Francis A. Schaeffer Institute of Church Leadership Development is conducting new research on current church trends to compare such trends against the research we did in the 90's.
 
Research includes this brief survey of church leaders regarding life in their respective churches and congregations. Please take 2 minutes to complete the survey as your feedback is an invaluable component of our study.

The collected results will provide important information that could benefit those in church leadership positions and congregations.
 
Just 10 short questions, Pastor's Survey

We tend to look to the simplest, easiest meaning to mentally digest solution and rarely seek a deeper meaning or application.
However, to grow in faith, we need to grow beyond ourselves, our perception, and our assumptions in order to grasp the true Truths Christ has for us. Thus, for us to grow in faith...

Preach holiness, how to worship, how to deal with sin, how to relate to one another, and how to love one another, while modeling it yourself! Evangelism, stewardship, and discipleship come out of these! As people are transformed, they can be taught and motivated. (Jeremiah 33:6; Romans 7:12; Galatians 3)
