Information that may help you – how to select the 30 people:

• Each individual participant must regularly attend the worship service, AND
• Must have some form of regular task in the church (no matter what it is), AND
• Must be part of some form of small group in the church (any subgroup of the worshipping community)
• In addition to fulfilling the above three criteria, the collective survey group should be representative of the church as a whole (i.e. it should include non-leaders as well as leaders, a proportionate number of people from different age groups and genders, etc.)
