Enlightening Today's Church with Relevant Insights

Relevant Insights

LifeWay Research assists and equips church leaders with insight and advice that will lead to greater levels of church health and effectiveness. Frequent surveys on today's church and culture demonstrate our knowledge of the dynamics of ministry today and our understanding of the realities of the culture we live in.

Assessments

LifeWay Research has created Transformational Assessments that measure how healthy a church is spiritually (Transformational Discipleship Assessment) and how well it is functioning as a unit (Transformational Church Assessment Tool). LifeWay Research also developed a tool with 11 church planting organizations to measure initial indicators of the readiness of a candidate to plant a church (Church Planter Candidate Assessment). Each tool goes beyond just good questions. Each has been proven validity and reliability, so you can trust the results. Each also provides church leaders with next steps to leverage strengths and address weaknesses.

Custom Research

LifeWay Research has helped Christian ministries impact lives by conducting custom research projects that create unique solutions to your needs. We have tested new product ideas, measured satisfaction, described church practices, measure the health of churches, and quantified perceptions for ministries, authors, more than 20 denominations, and businesses that serve churches. Let LifeWay Research improve the impact of your ministry by improving communications, focusing leadership, mobilizing believers, understanding trends, discovering opportunities, or reaching new people.
