Unauthorized distribution is prohibited. 1 Understanding Your Report Spiritual Life Survey Approach The Spiritual Life Survey captures insights for church leaders on the spiritual health of their congregation and the role the church plays in their spiritual growth. It includes 80 questions about an individual’s spiritual attitudes, beliefs, needs and behaviors as well as participation and satisfaction with local church activities. The survey is fielded on a web-only platform; participation is voluntary. This report compares your survey results for two successive REVEAL surveys that your church has taken.

We define a meaningful change as a change of one-half of a standard deviation from one wave to the next. Standard deviation is a unit of measure commonly used in statistics. One use of this statistic is to measure change over time. The standard deviations used to define meaningful change in this report come from the pooled data in our comparative database of churches who have taken the REVEAL survey since August We indicate meaningful changes with the green or red background only if there were 30 or more respondents for both Wave 1 and Wave 2.
