Make good work easier with faith-based organization surveys
The quality of a faith-based organization depends on inspired leadership, clear vision and direction, and thoughtful outreach and engagement. Good intentions aren’t enough to ensure that you’re on the right path. You need input from your community – the people who make your organization what it is, day by day.
Our online faith-based surveys help mission agencies, churches, and other faith-based organizations (FBOs) recognize, understand, and address challenges throughout the life cycle of their organization. By asking the right questions and incorporating different perspectives,you can build an organization that truly speaks for, and through, its leaders, staff, and members.
Growth comes from within
To reach more people and have more impact, faith-based organizations need to take growth strategy seriously, and be willing to re-evaluate how things are done. By staying in tune with the community, you can learn how best to engage a diverse population and develop programs that motivate the next generation to get involved.
In our modern world, people spend much of their time on computers and mobile devices, so online surveys are extremely effective in gathering feedback from your members and community. In fact, connecting with tech-savvy millennials is virtually impossible without appealing smartphone communications, which is why our surveys are optimized for mobile right out of the gate.
Many faith-based organizations serve people who represents variety of backgrounds, cultures and languages.To better serve your increasingly diverse community and learn whether they feel welcomed, included, and cared for, start with one of our sample surveys, tailor questions for your audience, and even automatically translate your survey into any of nearly 40 languages. By reaching out to all of your members, you ensure that your organization authentically reflects the spirit and gifts of your community.
Shine a light on leadership
Leaders of faith-based organizations need to be equally dedicated to both relationships and goals, offering good spiritual direction while also steering their organization toward a bright future. In times of growth, it can be a challenge for leaders to maintain deep personal connections with members. Leaders need to find ways to empower others during such expansion, or they risk losing touch with the community as you expand. When things are going well, leaders can become complacent, and get stuck in the status quo. But even a healthy organization needs fresh ideas to keep from stagnating. It’s not easy for some leaders to recognize when the balance between people and progress is out of whack. Input from the community they serve can help to make the difference. Real, honest feedback, in addition to self-evaluations, can reveal where your leadership is succeeding and pinpoint areas for improvement.
Our Faith-Based Organization surveys allow you to perform objective, comprehensive leadership assessments, and our clear, easy-to-run reports put the results in perspective. Making the right adjustments will benefit and preserve the health and quality of your organization, and further your mission and vision.
