In 2013, Missio Nexus launched the Mission CEO Survey: Mapping Global Currents. This inaugural CEO survey was fielded among chief executives from more than 150 mission organizations. The survey indicated changes that executives were observing in their organizations and anticipated challenges and opportunities over the following three years.
We seek to examine and consider carefully this new data and compare and contrast it with the new 2016 companion study we are also launching among Mission Organization CEOs.
The findings from this survey will be highlighted in September 2016 at the Mission Leaders Conference in Louisville, KY. At a later time a full report will be available as a stand-alone document and as part of the new Mission Handbook set to be published later in 2017.
Although time is a limited resource, your thoughts as a church mission leader will provide a great return as you process the results together with your elders, leadership team, and other ministry leaders. Our combined partnership, we believe, will produce shared learning, opportunities for new ideas and innovation which will lead to collaborative action for the sake of the Kingdom.
Update: The 2016 Church Mission Leader Survey is now closed. We are currently in the analysis and report presentation phase of the project.
