You will be presented with the download link after you complete payment.
What the Church Vitality Survey Reveals
The Church Vitality Survey provides your church leaders with data that will reveal your church’s current level of effectiveness and identify opportunities for increasing vitality. Some specific topics covered in the survey include:
- Main reasons for church attendance
- Perception of acceptance and belonging
- Volunteer potential
- Level of agreement with your church’s current vision, plans, and goals
The survey will also provide your church with a basic demographic breakdown of your congregation and offer insights into their foundational beliefs.
How It Works
Once you purchase the Church Vitality Survey, someone from the VitalChurch staff will email you to gather some additional information about your church. You will then be sent a unique survey link to email out to your congregation, along with some helpful tips for maximizing participation.
All completed surveys will be sent automatically (and anonymously) to VitalChurch. At the conclusion of the survey period, the diagnostic team at VitalChurch will process the survey results and present your church with a report within three business days. We will then schedule a one-hour follow-up call, during which we will go over the results and answer any questions you may have.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will the resulting report provide recommendations for our church going forward?
Your report will provide a summary analysis for each question, and during your one-hour follow-up call, a diagnostic expert from VitalChurch will offer some thoughts on the pathway forward, based on data and our more than 25 years of experience working with churches. If you would like to schedule additional, more in-depth coaching or consulting sessions with the VitalChurch team, that option is available.
Can we customize the survey with specific questions we would like our church to answer?
The Church Vitality Survey is designed to provide a general overview of your church at an affordable price point, and therefore is not customized. For a more detailed analysis that is tailored to your specific church, we recommend either a Tier 2 or Tier 3 diagnostic assessment.
How often should we conduct a Church Vitality Survey?
We recommend churches conduct a Church Vitality Survey each year. If your church is experiencing a major leadership transition or recurring issues, you may want to consider a Comprehensive Ministry Assessment.
