In a MultiSite Church, an intentional congregational survey can be one of the most useful tools to plan and prepare the campus launch team. By intentionally creating an assessment of your church, using localized vision and vernacular, a precisely designed survey can bring insight to…
1. Track Ministry Effectiveness
Learn who and where your volunteers and participants are currently involved. Using this insight, accurately plan for highly effective ministry right from the start at the new campus.
2. Observe Giving Trends
Track current giving based on age, involvement level, service attendance, and geography to optimize the campus launch for rapid sustainability.
3. Move Beyond Speculation
Understand the relationship between drive time and attendee involvement in serving or small group activities by region, and discover opportune campus launch locations.
4. Examine Strategy Involvement
Measure involvement in ministry activity and tune growth around disciple-making to create a culture of mission and fuel the pioneer spirit at the new campus.
5. Streamline Campus Launching
Discern the important essentials of growth and service by prioritizing actual laity response, over staff speculation, and set-up the campus launch for efficiency from the beginning.
6. Recruit Core Teams
Cross-reference ministry involvement, spiritual growth trends and community needs to develop a focused, localized campus launch team.
7. Assess Growth Markers
Benchmark existing conversion rate and growth as disciples and incorporate that data into your campus launch sustainability plan.
8. Feel Felt Needs
Understand more about the opportunities to minister and extend the Gospel into your targeted launch area, concentrating financial and missional resources where they are needed the most.
9. Plan Strategic Direction
Develop a launch timeline around actual conditions and personal experiences, precisely orienting initiation of groups, ministry and service launches.
10. Strengthen Guest Connections
Monitor the speed and strength of guest connections into Bible Study and service, tune the campus launch to be highly effective in guest experience and involvement.
