A Culture and Climate Survey was made available Monday, August 14th and so far there have been almost 200 responses. Thank you to all of those who have taken it and have encouraged others to do so.
All members of the diocese are invited to participate in a culture and climate survey about the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas, which will be open until Aug. 31, 2017.
This survey will assist the committee in developing a diocesan profile that best reflects our hopes, dreams and expectations for our next bishop. Its results will also inform the questions we ask nominees throughout the screening process.
Finally, the report will be a gift we give to the next bishop as he or she begins their call in early 2019, as it will provide rich data about who we are, what we value as a diocese, and how our own gifts and talents contribute to the mission and ministry of the church.
The survey takes 20-25 minutes to complete: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DioceseofKansas
You might think you have nothing to say, but you do. There are options to choose “I don’t know” and you might surprise yourself on how much you do have to say. The Search Committee would like to hear from all members of the diocese to help us in our search.
If you know someone who does not have access to a computer or does not feel comfortable taking the survey online, a paper option is available. Please contact the Rev. Casey Rohleder, Search Committee co-chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (785) 259-4672 for assistance.
