Presbyterian Panel Survey, August 2016 - Theological Reflection, Clergy (Uploaded: 3/26/2021)

The Presbyterian Panel began in 1973 and is an ongoing panel study in which mailed and web-based questionnaires are used to survey representative samples of constituency groups of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). These constituency groups include members, elders, pastors serving in a congregation and specialized clergy serving elsewhere.
The August 2016 Presbyterian Panel Theological Reflection survey married a few purposes: (1) assessing the impact of the work of the Presbyterian Mission Agency's Theological Reflection 'Collective Goal Grouping'; (2) exploring complexities in Presbyterians' theology of salvation and their understanding of Reformed theology; and (3) gauging support for and interest in possible innovations in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)'s theology of worship.

The Presbyterian Mission Agency's Theological Reflection 'Collective Goal Grouping' is one of 22 such Mission Agency groupings. Each grouping is undergoing impact assessment between 2015 and 2017. Goals set for the collective goal grouping (hereafter to be called a ministry) in early 2015 included: equip the church to reflect theologically on its identity and mission through ecumenical and interfaith engagement; equip the church to reflect theologically on its identity and mission; and, equip the church to reflect theologically on the vocation of all believers.

This survey was designed to provide baseline information with which to compare any future change in the ministry's impact. In the case of interfaith activities, it is possible to assess change, between 2013 and 2016, because the August 2016 Panel survey included a set of questions about interfaith activities that appeared - in slightly different form - in the November 2013 Presbyterian Panel survey on Interfaith Relations.

This dataset contains data from clergy.

Faith Communities Today Survey (FACT) 2015, Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (Uploaded: 3/26/2021)

The Faith Communities Today (FACT) surveys are a series of national surveys of U.S. congregations run by the Cooperative Congregational Studies Partnership. The first FACT survey was launched back in 2000 with the largest national survey of congregations ever conducted in the United States. Coordinated by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research at the Hartford Seminary, these surveys aim to not only compare and contrast congregational life across religious traditions but also provide insight into the changing nature of congregational life in the United States.

The 2015 FACT survey is a smaller version of the large national surveys completed at the beginning of each decade. Only surveying 4,436 congregations, this sample focused on completing a random oversample from 11 faith groups, in addition to a random national survey of non-partner congregations. Questions on the survey ranged from programs, demographics of the congregation, mission and identity, and projection of the future for the congregation. The FACT 2015 survey also only surveyed the male clergy. An additional question about the role of the respondent was also added at the end of the survey. This dataset contains data from the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.
