The Pastoral Search Committee is asking each member of your household over the age of 15 to complete the following two surveys (although anyone younger is still welcome to participate).
Please complete BOTH surveys by Friday, March 1st - we need your help in finding God’s direction for our future!
• Congregational Profile Survey - This first survey not only asks several sets of questions about our congregation's current ministry and your own involvement, but also seeks your input on church dynamics and your vision for our future.
• Ideal Lead Pastor Profile Survey - This second survey helps us to develop the characteristics, qualifications, and skills that we will be looking for in our new Lead Pastor.
It is important that everyone participate in this survey!
Completing these surveys ensures that your views have been heard and will give us a baseline from which to measure whether we are moving in directions that we think are important as we seek to find a pastor to inspire us in those directions. Your responses are anonymous unless you choose to give your name.
As your Pastoral Search Committee, we recognize that this moment in our history provides an important opportunity for us all to share together in assessing who we are and where we see ourselves going. The call of a new pastor is a critical event in the life of a congregation. It is a time of making a choice about our collective future.
We appreciate your thoughtful and prayerful responses. We hope you enjoy filling out this questionnaire and that in addition to assisting our church, you will also find this process helpful in reflecting on your faith, the meaning of your church experience, and your hopes for the future.
