Church Survey for Guidance & Renewal Team
The Guidance and Renewal Team (Dan Doman, Kellie Laraba, Arnie Vaughn, King Minter, Sam Miller, Audrey Stanton-Smith, Chip Williams) and Sharon Kniss (consultant with Cooperative by Design) invite your thoughtful and prayerful reflection on the following questions.

All responses will be received confidentially – your name will not be connected to any comments made public. You may provide your name and contact information for The Guidance and Renewal Team or Sharon Kniss to follow up with you, if there is something unclear or we would like to hear more about what you shared. However, your comments will still remain confidential.

Your responses will be helpful in shaping our recommendations.

*NOTE* These are the same questions which have been discussed in the focus groups/small group conversations. Therefore, if you have attended a focus group/small group conversation, you do not need to fill out this form (but you're welcome to, if you'd like to add more feedback).
