There are many ways to help determine whether or not a church is flourishing beyond simply looking at worship attendance. At best, COVID has helped churches see that physical and online attendance is just a portion of the picture, and at worst these worship numbers can be misleading. Therefore, the type of questions included in a statistically valid survey are immensely important in order for us to take a deeper look at the health of our congregations.
We hope this tool will eventually guide churches to pinpoint areas that need development so that they can flourish and make a greater quantity and quality of disciples. In addition, it will help the ECO Synod to provide resources necessary to encourage you in your discipleship and invigorate your church in its flourishing journey!
