The Fellowship has partnered with the Baylor School of Social Work to provide churches with the Church Census, a new, standardized survey instrument which provides congregational leaders with an in-depth profile of congregational family life. Through a recently secured grant, CBF churches can now receive this service for free (the grant covers both the $500 flat fee and the $1 per survey fee). Participating churches will receive a comprehensive computer-generated analysis of the strengths, stressors, and faith experiences of families in their congregation, which can serve as a foundation for family ministry planning. For more information, contact Rick Bennett at (800) 352-8741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
