As part of our work in ﬁnding a new pastor, the pastor nominating committee would like your input in describing our church as you presently experience it. We would like your thoughts about its strengths, its weaknesses, the needs you foresee for our church in the next ﬁve to ten years, the priorities you think our next pastor should have, and the qualities you believe he should possess.
It will probably take from thirty to forty-ﬁve minutes to thoughtfully answer the questions on this questionnaire. Please consider this an investment in helping ﬁnd the person who can effectively lead our church in the next phase of its growth. Try to be as honest as you can, even in your criticisms. Your questionnaire will remain anonymous unless you choose to sign it. Thank you in advance for your thoughtful input. It will be carefully reviewed by the committee.
Priorities (For Questions 1-20)
Pastors are called on to do many more things
than their time allows them to do. As a consequence, they have to make
decisions about priorities. In this process, it is helpful for him to know
what their congregation view as priorities. Please look through the following
list and based on what is most important to you, circle 1-4 with 1 being most important and 4 being the least.
Please note that if you complete this survey through Church Connect do not log into your account if you want your responses to be anonymous.
