Introduction 

Thank you for taking the time to complete this confidential Church Health assessment as part of the Transitional process. This assessment has three main sections.

The first section gathers some basic information about you. (questions 1 - 7)

The second section is about the present. It is designed to gain insights from the congregation about key areas of church health at this time in the season of transition as part of the process to answer the question "Who Are We Now?" (questions 8 - 23)

The third section is about Values, Mission and Vision. It is designed to gather information about what the congregation is collectively hearing from God about dreams and aspirations for the future.  (questions 24 - 30) This section requires brief written answers to each question.

Prior to completing this assessment we encourage you to take some time to pray and reflect before sharing your thoughts. A summary of this assessment will be presented to the congregation early in 2019. 

Please note that you must complete this assessment in one sitting.  It will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.
