WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TAKING THE USCVS?
About four weeks after a congregation returns its completed surveys, you will receive a Congregational Vitality Report. This report provides your congregation's scores on seven marks of congregational vitality, as well as results for all questions that measure each mark. Putting these pieces together lets your congregation see its unique strengths. It is up to you and others in the congregation to interpret the findings in light of what you know about the congregation — where it is located, how it is changing, and where it is going.
We recommend each congregation dedicate a leadership meeting to reviewing the results together. Do not focus on the negative — celebrate your strengths as a congregation. Your report will also include guidance for interpretation.
We are also available to review the results with you or your team — we can set up a phone conversation, or even do a virtual meeting with your leadership team to go over the results together!
