Thank you for taking the time to complete the following survey. The purpose of this survey is to determine common and related factors regarding numerical growth within local churches. It must be stated that the author of this survey does not necessarily believe numbers alone are an indication of church health. This survey is intended to be a help and a resource for church-planters, pastors and others in the gospel ministry. As responses to this survey are completed, beginning with the first 100 responses, the results will be published on this website. Please note that more than one response can be entered for each question. You may also choose not to answer a question. If you choose to give your identity, your identity will be kept confidential and will not be indicated in the responses. These questions are meant to gather data, not to make judgements on any particular person, church or ministry.
