The call of the church is to make disciples. But…
How do you know if your church is growing spiritually?
Are your ministry efforts well focused to nurture your specific congregation?
Is your church effectively reaching the community?
Take steps to move forward in the spiritual growth of your church!
LRM has designed a simple tool to evaluate spiritual growth and its impact on your community. By using this tool, you will no longer have to guess about the spiritual needs of your people. It will allow you to determine priorities, focus your ministry, grow your church spiritually, and ultimately have an impact on your community.
A Simple Survey: Spiritual Growth & Community Impact
Decades of experience and now more than 10,000 entries have resulted in a proven way to help churches become more effective at making disciples. And it really is simple to facilitate and use.
How does it work?
LRM provides a simple survey to be administered to the entire congregation. The survey consists of easy-to-answer yes-or-no statements and can be completed in less than 15 minutes. The same survey will be used by your leadership team to help set goals for the church's spiritual development.
Anonymous survey results will accurately gauge the spiritual condition of the congregation.
The leadership surveys will help your team set clear goals and expectations for the church.
The two surveys are used together to determine priorities and direct your ministry focus for optimum growth.
Our survey consists of 31 yes/no statements to assess your congregation. Your leaders will also customize 5 additional statements to target specific areas. (We will help guide you in this by sending sample statements used by previous churches.) Once your survey structure is finalized, you will receive forms to print and distribute. The congregational surveys, in a yes-or-no format, can easily be completed within 15 minutes. The leadership surveys will ask the same questions in regards to their expectations for the congregation as a whole.
"On average I spend 15 minutes or more each day with God in prayer."
Yes or No
enter a number representing a percentage on “any given Sunday” that they would want to respond “yes”
After the surveys are administered and collected, they are sent back to LRM to be compiled into a report. This detailed report will help the leaders of the church identify strengths and weaknesses within the congregation and help focus efforts toward becoming a church that impacts its community for Christ. For example, if the leadership benchmark goal for prayer is 85% and the congregation responds with 55%, plans can be made to achieve that goal. You will also be able to evaluate the responses and goals in comparison to database norms (compiled through 10,000+ previous responses).
The survey can be done once or used annually for several years. This allows your church to immediately assess as well as gauge progress on an on-going basis. Our goal is to help you pray, seek, and plan with the Holy' Spirit’s guidance.
