MB Church Transformation Survey

Introducing the Transformation Survey

The results from our first Transformation Survey are in! For those who may be unaware, CCMBC emailed out our first Transformation Survey to all MB churches in June-July of this year. The purpose of the Transformation Survey is to measure, over time, the transformation of our churches in three areas: Life Transformation, Church Transformation and World Transformation. We feel this is critical because it allows us to track the impact and use of CCMBC initiatives toward our goal of multiplying Christ-centred churches to see Canada transformed by the good news of Jesus Christ. It is the mandate of the measurement committee of the executive board to evaluate the effectiveness of CCMBC initiatives, and we see this survey as an invaluable tool to help us do that. To be clear, the purpose of this survey is not to evaluate individual churches or to hold them accountable. Results from this survey will be used by the national board and provincial leaders to help us evaluate conference initiatives over time. For example, we were thrilled to discover that the vast majority of MB churches (87%) are involved in global missions in some way. We hope to see that percentage grow over time.

We received completed surveys from 144 (57%) of our churches. Our sincere thanks to all the pastors and church leaders who filled it out. Based on your helpful comments, we will make changes to future versions of the survey. In order to measure change over time, it is important that churches participate every year and that we have a high response rate. Of course, the results of this survey can be downloaded below as well as in future articles in the Herald. Stay tuned!

The Survey is now Closed! Thank you for your participation.


We are reaching out to Mennonite Brethren to share their opinions on how to build community between MB churches and to determine the kinds of resources that can help with discipleship. The MB Herald publication is one example of a resource that helps build community among MBs so we’re hoping to hear your opinions on this and other resources that CCMBC could provide. Insights will be collected via a nation-wide survey, beginning September 10th.

The survey will be available from September 10th–25th and can be completed at www.mbsurvey.ca.
