I was once taught that the essence of our work as a Conference and as a denomination is to “minister to the ministries of Jesus Christ in and through our churches” At our national UCC offices we have a Ministry Development Council which holds that same purpose. They are asking for our help so that they can better fine tune their work and develop the resources our churches, clergy and laity need for those ministries. Below is a request from them. Could you take some time before this week ends to respond to their request. Your insight and perspective would be invaluable. Blessings, Don
Do you consider yourself a leader within your church? The Ministry Development Council needs your help!
We are looking to gather opinions from people like you about what contributes to ministerial effectiveness within your church. Through collaboration with Work Effects, a leadership consulting firm, we are developing a state-of-the-art assessment for ministerial effectiveness. By taking a brief survey to assist in our research, you will be helping to provide the critical data we need. Results will be confidential and anonymous and will only be used for the research and development of the assessment.
Are you interested in playing a role in finding and equipping the next generation's leaders in ministry? It takes 5 to 10 minutes of your time to complete the survey. If you are a denominational leader, you can choose to complete the survey with either your congregation or a congregation with whom you work in mind.
