ALL-CONGREGATION SURVEY April 8-29
As you have probably heard by now, PPC’s Transition Steering Committee is entering into a period of discernment as part of the process necessary before we can proceed with our senior pastor search. This part of the process involves getting responses from as many people as possible about what the church’s direction should be. We chose the CAT (Congregation Assessment Tool) survey because it provides a comprehensive “selfie” of where we are as a church at this moment in time. What are our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and challenges? When we are thinking, dreaming, and praying about the future of this church, what do we see?
Your input is crucial.
When we get to the stage of considering applications for the senior pastor position, we want this decision to be based on the thoughts and feelings of everyone, not just the handful of people directly involved in the search. The Presbytery asks us to go through this self-assessment process before calling a new pastor, and we think it is a very healthy thing to do, since envisioning our future as a congregation is so much more than just an employment decision.
- Survey responses are strictly anonymous. We will ONLY see aggregated responses, never individual responses and never names associated with any responses.
- You will need to set aside 20-30 minutes to complete the survey all at once, since it cannot be saved and returned to.
- We are asking all members, all regular worshippers, and everyone 16 and over to complete the survey.
The survey opened April 8 and will close April 29. You should have received an email with a link you can use to access the survey. If you did not and would like to, please contact Catherine Agar [email protected].
