Summary

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod conducted a series of surveys from a single panel of respondents. The four surveys were designed to determine members' positions on a variety of issues, including theological beliefs, the role of families in the Church, the life of congregations' members and pastors responsibilities, and the effectiveness and breadth of ministries within the Church. This is the third of the four surveys and focuses on aspects of congregational ministry, including pastor and member responsibilities.

The ARDA has added three additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
