One of the biggest challenges of church leadership is gaining an accurate understanding of your congregation. The truth is you don’t know what you don’t know. How do you move past anecdotal stories and optimistic assumptions to base decisions on real data? The Auxano RealTime Survey will provide incomparable value by shedding light on your congregation in ways you didn’t know were possible.
- Obtain a fresh demographic snapshot of your congregation.
- Compare demographic trends for your congregation and your community in view of recent growth (typically 2 years).
- Establish a benchmark of ministry involvement.
- Uncover obstacles to assimilation in the ministry involvement.
- Create a listening mechanism for directional decision-making.
- Increase vision ownership within attenders.
- Enhance your leadership credibility.
I haven't seen a tool like the RealTime Survey in my 30 years of ministry. The power of leading with facts, not assumptions, will blow you away. I highly recommend the investment for any pastor of any size church. - Drew Tucker, Executive Pastor, Bellevue Baptist Church
Customized, Specific, and Actionable
The survey itself is comprised of approximately 40 questions. There are 38 baseline questions that are
customized to fit unique context and strategy. In addition, your church will have the ability to add 2
strategic direction questions that are completely unique to you and your congregation. The answers to
these questions will provide specific feedback on growth challenges or opportunities you may be facing.
