Churches, both big and small, can make good use of surveys. Regardless of the size of the congregation, surveying the congregation, the staff, and the pastor can help you gain invaluable information about your church and its stakeholders. Such data can help improve your church's offerings and determine budgets, attract new members, gather demographic data, evaluate your programs, and much more!Some common surveys you could conduct include:
- Congregation Survey - Both small and large churches are better served knowing more detailed information about its members such as demographics, happiness, spiritual beliefs, and so forth.
- Leadership Assessment - Find out what the congregation thinks about the pastor. Can the congregation relate to his sermons, is he open to questions, does he lead by example?
- Child/Teen Surveys - Find out if the children and teens in the congregation are satisfied with the activities and programs designed for their needs and interests.
- Spiritual Life / Bible Knowledge - Examine the spiritual well-being of the congregation.
- Volunteer and Staff reviews - Find out the satisfaction level of the staff and volunteers.
Church surveys can be conducted using scannable forms and they can also be placed online for congregation members who are online.
A quality survey can make all of the stakeholders at the church feel welcome and give them a sense of community. Knowing that their opinions matter, and that you will act on the results of the survey, can encourage solidarity and continued membership.Click here for Church Survey Software
