2017 National Survey – Results

by CCMBC Communications

Working together with the 6 provincial conferences and MB ministry partners, the CCMBC Executive Board authorized a national survey to be conducted from December 1-31, 2017. The online survey included 21 questions plus 9 demographic questions. Email notifications were distributed by the provincial conferences to all MB churches and notices were posted on the various conference web sites. Churches were also asked to invite their members to participate in the survey.

The purpose of the survey was to review our conference relationships and structures. The survey was developed with input from all organizations that are mentioned in the survey, i.e. provincial conferences, national conference, BFL, CCMBC Legacy, C2C, MB Mission, camps, CBC, CMU, ETEQ and MB Seminary. The survey results are available below and will be discussed at the provincial and national conventions in 2018.

We are grateful to the people who took time to provide feedback. The information collected has been very insightful and has helped the Executive Board in its discernment.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your question. We have the open-ended questions summarized in themes, and by percentage of people who answered for each category. At times it did require a judgement call to decide which category each answer fit into, but if you would be interested in seeing that information you can email me at communications@mbchurches.ca.

A summary document is being prepared for public release, but it probably won’t be ready until May.
