Church transformation survey results 2016
The responses to the second Church Transformation Survey have been received and the results tallied. In this second year of the survey, 150 churches participated. (At 61 percent of our 245 churches, up slightly from the 144 last year.)
Our sincere thanks to all the pastors and church leaders who completed it.
The purpose of the Church Transformation Survey is to track the impact and use of CCMBC initiatives toward our goal of multiplying Christ-centred churches to see Canada transformed by the good news of Jesus Christ. To do this, we look at the aggregated responses from churches in three areas: Life Transformation, Church Transformation and World Transformation.
With two years of data now, we can begin to measure change over time.
One hundred churches filled out the survey in both 2015 and 2016, and these 100 churches provide the best sample for measuring change over time.
We also now have a combined sample of 193 different churches who filled out the survey in at least one of the two years. This combined sample represents nearly 79 percent of our churches, which is best sample for looking at overall averages.
The full results of this survey are available at mennonitebrethren.ca. As more churches complete the survey consistently each year, we will have a better measure of movement toward our mission!
