Thank you for taking the time to tell us about yourself and your experience of our congregation!

Surveys can help break down assumptions and help reveal what is. This survey will help you, your congregational leadership, and your future minister understand your congregation better.

Answers to these questions will help guide the small-group discussions the search team will be having across the congregation, and help enrich the narrative that your search committee shares with ministerial candidates.

It’s a long survey, so please make yourself comfortable and settle in. This is a thorough investigation, for sure! We estimate the survey will take 15-25 minutes to fill out. The raw data will be kept confidential.

The survey is organized into three sections: understanding your perspective on a minister, understanding your relationship with MPUUC, and understanding you. If a question makes you feel uncomfortable or too vulnerable, please skip it.

It can often be difficult to narrow your thoughts down to only what is listed on a multiple choice document. We have provided space for open comments at the end of each section where you can expand upon your answer if desired.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Stephen Longfield ( or DeAnna Alm ( Please be as honest as possible. Your leadership is ready to hear what you have to say. An anonymized summary and analysis will be reported out to the congregation.
