Inspiring each of us to grow in Discipleship

Thank you so much for taking the time to complete this 5-10 minute assessment.  We live in a fast-changing world, and we are constantly making decisions on how best to build up members of our congregation in a way that inspires each person to grow in all areas of discipleship.  This survey is not about filling slots or goading people to do what they don't want to do.  It is about helping people recognize and grow stronger in their baptismal call to serve Jesus through his church in our world.

Our staff and other leaders will use your survey to make the best decisions we possibly can when organizing God's people for the work of ministry.  This information will be used sensitively and carefully, this is not a commitment to serve in any particular area.  Every member of our church is an individual - with unique gifts, passions, interests, hobbies, and circumstances.  These results will influence how we build teams, recruit for help, and what we plan on teaching in the months to come.  Please take your time and fill this out prayerfully.  We are not looking for right answers.  We are praying that as we grow larger, we are also growing deeper in our love for God and neighbor.
