My boss just came back from eight weeks of sabbatical. Something I get to look forward to in a little less than 5 more years. Sigh…

So, he’s been visiting other churches in Austin during these eight weeks. On one of these visits, he got an email just a few days after the visit thanking him for coming and asking him to fill out the following survey.

This is a simple google docs form. All the responses fill a spreadsheet with timestamps so you are likely to know what weekend a person is referring to in their review.

I honestly believe that most of us spend more time assuming how people feel about our ministry and more time moving on what we think is really going on. Honest and accurate evaluation is a lost art and a much-needed habit. We’re planning to implement a very similar evaluation in a few weeks or so.
