The Survey of Theological Needs and Resources

Filed under: Needs and Resources,Starting Points — howardpilgrim @ 3:40 pm

A month ago, at our Waiapu diocesan synod, I launched a survey of all clergy in the diocese, together with lay ministers holding a license for preaching or teaching. My purpose is threefold:

* to gain a clearer sense of how my colleagues in this diocese see their own needs for ongoing theological education

* to identify those who are able to teach others in various areas of the curriculum

* to begin building a database tracking these needs and resources so that no potential learner or teacher is overlooked.

The initial reception to my presentation at synod was very positive and so far I have received over 45 written responses: about one third of those holding relevant licenses. This is enough to confirm that the needs and resources are real, that this project has plenty of initial goodwill, and for me to continue with initial planning for the coming year.

Meantime, you may be one of those Waiapu colleagues in ministry who have not yet replied. It is never too late! All you need to do is to download the survey form from this drop-site, then either fill it out in Word and email it back to me, or print it out, enter your responses in longhand, and post it back. I look forward to your contribution.
