Last week I taught my class on Field Research for Ministry for a cohort of Doctor of Ministry students and this week I am attending the annual meeting of the Congregational Studies association. One of the items on our agenda is a report on the second phase of the "Reveal" survey conducted by the Willow Creek Association. The first phase was published about this time last year at the annual Leadership Summit, and now they have gathered data from more than 400 other congregations, so this research becomes much more generalizable and interesting. I do not know if they are presenting the same report at the Leadership Summit, but the researchers will be meeting with our group, make a presentation and engage in dialog with researchers from across the country. I will post a preliminary report by Thursday morning. There will undoubtedly by other interesting items from this meeting; there always is.
