Almost a year ago, I requested help from pastors in the form of completing a survey for my final Doctor of Ministry requirements. That survey was closed in September and the results have been compiled and compared, analyzed and assembled into something resembling a conclusion.
I learned much in this survey, much of which surrounds the idea that writing survey questions that tell you what you want to know is very hard. And sorting data is is not for us inexperienced people. In the future, I intend to stick to counting noses and nickels and leave this kind of stuff to people like Ed Stetzer and George Barna. Of course, neither of them were willing to do this survey for a price which I could afford, so I did it myself.
For those of you who took the time to take the survey, my sincere thanks.
