1. Mission and Ministry Review

The LCAQD, as part of a longer term mission strategy, is seeking ways to best support every Lutheran Congregation in Queensland to reflect on how they can be an intentionally contextual missional community.  
 
In order to gain a clearer picture of how each congregation sees itself as a missional community, I ask that you complete the following brief ten minute survey. You might wish to complete it online at a Council or Board meeting, or simply complete it directly yourself. 
 
The following survey will assist to provide a ‘baseline’ across the LCAQD.
