Insights is a library of micro-survey tools to help youth leaders measure the effectiveness of their youth ministry and the spiritual health of their youth.
Start by choosing a topic that you’d like to assess your church youth on. You may choose from a range of topics such as prayer, biblical beliefs, spiritual habits, faith in life, view of self, and more.
You can then send an invitation to the students in your youth group asking them to fill the online form. The short, simple, and conversational style of the form is designed to cater to the youth.
As your students complete the survey, you’ll get an easy-to-understand report that shows their responses graphically represented in real time. It will also include suggestions for ministering more effectively to Gen Z.
Insights has challenged me to ask the question – what are the signs of impactful ministry beyond the numbers?
