Getting people to respond to church survey questionnaires is always somewhat of a challenge. You can increase your chances of getting your maximum participation and achieving a typical sample of your target audience by following a few basic steps:

  • Understand and Identify Your Feedback Objective - Spend time brainstorming what your goal is for your survey so you can pinpoint the questions that will provide the exact information that you need, and build a survey that works for you.


  • Keep Survey Survey Simple and Focused - If you have a short survey with a clear purpose, you will have more participants and likely more useful results. Keep your questions direct and connected to the underlying theme of the survey. To maximize results, keep your survey templates as brief as possible (30 or fewer questions and under 10 minutes in duration).
  • Don't Over-Survey - Spread out your surveys over a period of time so your participants do not receive an endless stream of survey requests. A good rule of thumb is only one survey solicitation per participant per month. Coordinate within your church departments to ensure that you keep the number of surveys at a reasonable level.
  • Share Results - Let your survey participants know if their survey led to new policies or initiatives. This a great way that they can see that you are listening to their voices and that their feedback has genuine value that leads to improvements.

The First Time Visitor Survey is a great tool to use to see your church from a first time visitor's point a view. This survey includes:

  • We would love to hear from you on what you thought about your first time to visit [Church Name] so if you have been a recent guest at our church please take a quick moment to fill out the survey below. Thank you in advance!
  • First Time Visitor's Name, Home Phone, Cell Phone, Email and Date of First Visit
  • Age range of adults living in your home. (They just simply check what applies on these questions.)
  • Married or Single (With or Without Children)
  • Church Experience
  • Please evaluate your personal experience at [Church Name]: Music, Message, Environment, Friendliness, Children's Classes, Signage Outside, Signage Inside, Overall Experience
  • Where you greeted at the front door?
  • Did you feel welcomed upon entering the sanctuary?
  • If you had children with you, were you told about our Nursery and Children's Church?
  • Were the Nursery and Children's Church workers friendly and helpful?
  • How did you hear about [Church Name]?

Visitor Testimonials

*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

This database:

  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer
