our Christian Worker Survey: the results

By Alexandra Khan | 12 August 2011 | Comments (1)

At the beginning of the year we asked some of our registered Christian Workers to answer a few questions and help us make some wise decisions.  We were delighted that over 200 of them did.

You can find the full report here, but we pulled out three key statistics that are particularly illuminating:

  • A third of Christian Workers said that money is the biggest worry in ministry
  • Only half of them are able to set aside anything for the future
  • Over half of them have a degree of difficulty in communicating the need for personal expenses

The responses in this survey have clearly indicated that there are a number of issues commonly facing Christian Workers which need to be unpacked further.

If you support a Christian Worker through your giving, have you considered how they might be planning to fund a pension? Do you hear them speak openly about any financial difficulty they may be experiencing?

If you are a Christian Worker, can you identify with any of the key findings? What would you say are the financial challenges you'd most like to communicate to your supporters?

If you receive our Piggy Bank newsletter because you are a Christian Worker or Bible College Student, please click on the link inside the latest edition to complete the second survey - your views really will help to shape the services that Stewardship provides to recipients. Results of the second survey will be available later in the year.

Stewardship should encourage beneficiaries of her services to think of supporting the organisation to enable those in need to benefit as well.
