The School of Graduate Studies of Hope International University is conducting a survey to ascertain the need and practicality of offering an MS in Executive Ministry. Your participation is valued and appreciated.

The survey is broken into pages relating to general course categories. The categories are:
* Ministry Strategies
* Ministry
* Operations
* Organizational Issues
* People Issues

In most of the sections, you will be asked to rank the top three courses (course work) that you feel would be helpful to you. In addition, you will be asked if you've had training in the selected area and how valuable that training was. If you indicate that you have not had training in the selected area, you can indicate how valuable you think the training will be.

In one section, you will be given the opportunity to add course ideas that are not included in the survey as created.

The final section will be to collect demographic data. While you may identify yourself, it is not required and all of the answers given by you will remain confidential. Data will be used in aggregate only.

Thank you so much for your input. Hope is trying to create a program that will fill the needs of those involved in ministry and needing further training in church administration. Your participation will help this program to fit the needs of church administrative pastors around the country, or even further.
