Congregational Life Assessment Resources

Hartford Seminary’s Hartford Institute for Religion Research offers three free self-assessment inventories, which assess member perspectives on church programs and clergy needs. The responses of the 11,386 respondents in 84 congregations who used these surveys in a 27-month period between 2004 and 2006 were collated into a report that can be used as a comparison for congregations that employ the inventories (see multiple links below). It is also useful for church leaders and judicatory personnel as a snapshot of the interests, concerns and needs of contemporary church members.
