West Region Pastor Evaluation Instrument

This survey is meant for the general membership of all churches within the West Region. Sharing your experience helps the Region Director know how best to coach and mentor your pastor, what to affirm in his/her ministry, or even if it might be time for a change. If there are areas of particular concern not covered in this survey, feel free to email me to share these at ghoenes@sccsda.org 

By the way: three of our churches have two pastors. In such cases, members may be asked to fill out two surveys. Generally, Associate Pastors are evaluated by their Sr. Pastors and Boards. 

Thank you for your thoughtful participation and candor.

Greg Hoenes, PhD, Director, West Region, SCC
