There’s Still Time to Participate in Our Annual Survey

by | 21 January, 2021 | 0 comments

There are still a few days left to participate in Christian Standard’s annual survey of Christian churches and churches of Christ.

“Capturing the stories and statistics from 2020 is vital for us to gauge the true impact of the pandemic on our churches and establish baselines to measure future growth and changes,” said Kent Fillinger, who has been conducting our annual survey for more than a dozen years.

Leaders from churches of all sizes—from smallest to largest—are encouraged to participate. The data we collect will be shared online and in a print issue of the magazine. As an added bonus, participating church leaders will be emailed the survey’s results one month before the print issue is published.

We will be collecting data through this coming Monday, Jan. 25.
