King of Kings Congregational Survey
Please help us with data gathering for our Ministry Site Profile by filling out this survey.

Information from the survey will:
1) Help understand who we are as a congregation
2) What the congregation is looking for in a new pastor.

What is a Ministry Site Profile? This document is required to officially post our opening for a new pastor with the ELCA. The information included will help potential applicants to determine if they are a good fit with King of Kings. Once the Ministry Site Profile is completed and approved by the Church Council, it is sent on the Bishop and then posted in the Ministry Opportunities listing on the ELCA website.

If you have any questions about the Ministry Site Profile or the survey itself, please contact us:
Barb Winkel - 40winks@twcny.rr.com - Church Council President
Anita Leitgeb - leitgebanita@gmail.com - Transition Team Chair
Howie Mansfield - howiemansfield@gmail.com - Technical Support

This survey will take between 10-15 minutes.
