CHICAGO, IL (April 13, 2018) – The Covenant needs only 15 more credentialed clergy to help their colleagues by participating in the Lilly Foundation’s Flourishing in Ministry survey by May 1.
Clergy who have taken the survey say they have found it easy and the immediate feedback is helpful.
Participation is free and anonymous. Any ECC pastor in any ministry setting is encouraged to complete the survey. Pastors between calls are also encouraged to participate.
So far, 385 people have completed the survey. An additional 15 are needed to obtain meaningful data. The study will help the ECC to better consider how it can help ministers to stay healthy as persons and to thrive in mission and ministry.
To participate, go to the Flourishing in Ministry site and click on “join our study.” The code is: ECC. The feedback tool takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Responders will automatically and immediately receive feedback report upon completion of the survey.
Reaching the goal means that Lilly Endowment will provide a report for the Ministerium Annual Meeting this June.
