Know Your Church report

Learn how to leverage what your church does well to improve what it doesn't do well

The Know Your Church report consists of a 160-item questionnaire that measures a church’s perceived health in six purposes of the church: worship, evangelism, fellowship, discipleship, prayer, and ministry. Church leaders choose a sampling of the church membership to complete the 15-20 minute survey, and we provide a detailed health report for the church.

How It Works

Our user-friendly survey website walks you through 160 questions to form a well-rounded view of your church and its health. The website is mobile-friendly and can be accessed on any internet-connected device. The process and directions are self-explanatory, and the final report includes suggestions for addressing concerns raised.

At the completion of your survey, you’ll be provided with multiple reports that show you where your church ranks on six major aspects of church health along with an average health score.
