Women’s Ministry Survey

This survey has been used by churches to reach out to women in their congregation and their community in order to provide ministry that is Christ-centered, biblically based, and relevant to women’s lives today.  If your women’s ministry is looking to offer a program that will provide opportunity for spiritual growth and meaningful mission projects, this survey will help you target the specific needs of your group.
