Introduction and Invitation

Our goal is to understand clergy skills and challenges in the financial aspects of ministry, with the ultimate end of improving the personal financial situation of clergy and the financial strength of the congregations they serve.  We are grateful for your participation and thank you for helping us continue our research and learning from each of the education components of this project.
The survey is 17 questions plus two demographic questions about your congregation, and your contact information, if you wish to provide it.  In any case, we will keep your identity and your responses confidential.  Survey results will be reported only in aggregate and anonymously. Thank you for your leadership and for participating in this research and assessment exercise.

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the survey, please contact Project Manager Bonnie Marden at or 978-846-1260.  We are grateful for your gift of time in completing this survey and for your leadership in the United Methodist Church.
