Make Your Voice Heard! Take the Weekly Pastor Poll!
We’re inviting you to participate in a new initiative we’ve been working on in partnership with Barna and Gloo, our research and technology friends.
 
They have developed the COVID-19 Crisis Toolkit: a set of FREE tools and resources created to help you get a pulse on your people and your communities while also allowing you to hear from other leaders across the U.S.
 
You are encouraged to take the Weekly Pastor Poll— every week . Taking the poll not only allows you to lend your voice to the nationwide conversation, it also unlocks the national aggregate poll results, providing you with insight into how other community leaders are feeling and responding to this crisis.
 
Here’s how to get started:

  1. Register your church by CLICKING HERE. Already have an account with Gloo? Use the link to get connected to Stone Mountain Baptist Association.
  2. Take the Weekly Pastor Poll.
  3. View and compare the poll’s results weekly on an interactive dashboard.
  4. Browse the other free tools available in the platform that can help you know and engage those you serve
 
Let’s prepare our network for the next generation of ministry, together.
Return to God
The prophet Malachi, called for the people of God to return to Him! Today our nation is troubled and the only one that has the answer is God! I want to ask you as a church leader to join the Stone Mountain Baptist Association in asking the people of God to return to God! To shut the doors of your prayer closet and ask God to intervene on our behalf.

Our focus as an Association of Churches in the months to come in our communication and our meetings will be to return to God and to pray! You are encouraged to join us!
