Faith Communities Today (FACT) Research Update
For the past eight years we have been involved with the Cooperative Congregational Studies Partnership (CCSP) based in Hartford, Conn. They have been surveying 40 faith groups (many denominations, Bahai, Greek Orthodox, etc.) to discover the trends, attitudes and options of church attenders. Adventists have been one of the 40 groups with their own breakout of the data and own report—as is true with all the other participant groups.
The Center’s good news is that the CCSP just contracted with us this week to conduct their phone interviews this year. In the past the questionnaires have been circulated by mail with waves of reminders to follow until an adequate sample was achieved. This time they have agreed to gather the data by phone interviews, with which our Center team has extensive experience over the past decade.
Please pray for our phone interviewers as they contact hundreds of congregations, synagogues and temples across North America in the coming months.
