Data is a Leader’s Ally: Key Research Analysis for the Modern Missions Movement

Data is a Leader’s Ally: Key Research Analysis for the Modern Missions Movement

Friday @ 1:30pm

Utilizing analysis from four key projects that took place over 2016, I will seek to demonstrate the practical and necessary aspects of data analysis for mission leaders and how informed study can allow leaders to be more effective in their roles. In addition, we will show how data can inform strategy development, leading toward effectively accomplishing organizational mission. As a research analyst for Missio Nexus, this past year I conducted two major projects: one on mission CEOs and another on mission pastors. I also managed the data analysis for the new edition of theNorth American Mission Handbook: U.S. and Canadian Protestant Ministries Overseas 2017-2019 and analyzed data on a study focused on Mission Motives.
