LEAD Congregational Overview

Please complete this Overview form with background information related to your congregation and context.

The Overview is divided into three parts: Introduction, About Your Congregation, and About Your Neighborhood. There is a link at the end of each section that allows you to “Save and Continue Later.” A list of the questions is available so you can be prepared with the information you will need before you begin. For your reference, a link to an easy-to-use US Census Bureau website with demographic data by city, county or zip code is also included.

The information in the Overview is only collected once, from you or the main contact person; it is not required of the members of your congregation or LEAD team, if you have one. Accurate, up-to-date data will be valuable not only to your own congregation but to the broader Christian community as we partner together to grow Christian leaders.
