Cool Survey Tool

April 27, 2006 — 1 Comment


I went to the pre-conference on “Multi-Site Church Planting” at the National New Church Conference this week in Orlando, Florida.

It was an incredible blessing.

The two-day conference was lead by Jon and Dave Ferguson from Community Christian Church in Chicago, Illinois. http://www.communitychristian.org/ &
http://www.newthing.org/

In the next couple of days I’m going to blog on some of what I learned, but one resource Jon Ferguson mentioned looks like it may provide immediate–and positive–results for our church planning and programming. Jon mentioned that CCC uses an online survey to evaluate their programs called, www.zoomerang.com.

Zoomerang is an online survey software which allows users to create and send surveys. We are using the free version.

We held a volunteer appreciation event last Sunday night, so I prepared a survey to evaluate the event and sent it to 40 attendees. I immediately began receiving surveys and–so far–the response has been both enthusiastic and informative.

We are going to continue testing this tool, but it looks like zoomerang may be a valuable–and free–resource that we can use to evaluate and improve our outreach and programming.

We are considering adding an anonymous online zoomerang survey on the homepage of our website for first-time guests at Southside.

I’ll let you know how it works.
