Are you ready to gain a new perspective on your neighborhood and what cultural, economic, ethnic or generational differences exist there? Would you like to become better equipped with the knowledge that will help you reach beyond the pews to empathize, connect and build new relationships in your community?
Demographics may be the tool that will help your congregation become more effective in its mission outreach to those who don’t know Christ and who aren’t currently part of the church.
The Office of Congregational Development has partnered with MissionInsite, a demographic data resourcing website, to provide our Conference churches with access to this valuable tool.
