GRACE Survey Belmont Church

The Pastoral Leadership Team (PLT) of Belmont Church prayerfully wants this church to be the safest place to worship in the United States. In order to achieve this attainable goal, the PLT is proactively seeking to identify any issue of concern, which is now or has in the past, caused harm to anyone related to this church or its membership. This confidential survey is part of an independent assessment to determine who or what occurred so the PLT can take the steps necessary to heal our church and anyone affected along the way. To this end, the PLT is working with an organization known as GRACE – Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment. The PLT invites you, your family, and friends to participate in this brief survey to assist us and GRACE in identifying any misconduct. The purpose of this survey is to 1) collect any and all relevant information consistent with the scope of this assessment, and 2) assist GRACE in identifying individuals who may have relevant information that could be contacted in order to schedule follow-up interviews relevant to this assessment. Please know the information provided by survey respondents within the survey itself may be used in the final assessment provided to Belmont Church. However, the identity of survey respondents shall be kept strictly confidential and will not be voluntarily disclosed to Belmont Church or to any third party without the written permission of the individual survey respondent.
