Community Worship Survey

As of Friday afternoon we've had over 360 take an online survey that was sent out via email primarily in regard to our weekend worship services at Parkview. This is the first time Parkview has taken an online survey and I must say it's been quite the experience. Though I know web surveys exclude a certain population, I found it interesting that those who have taken the survey are representing Parkview's age demographic and service attendance almost perfectly. If you haven't taken the survey, do so quickly because we will be shutting it down in the next few days.

I will be sharing some of the general results in the future. Some of the information has been very encouraging and some of it has identified areas we need to work on. Though this was a needed and important survey for us, it was really a precursor/test-run for a "spiritual health" survey we are hoping to take church-wide during the Fall semester. More on that later....

For those of you who work in businesses or churches who would benefit from online surveys. I highly recommend Survey Monkey. It is a powerful service with easy to build professional looking surveys that provide "to the second" analysis as the results come in.
