Vital Signs Assessment Available On Line Soon: Accident Delays October 1 Implementation

October 01, 2008

A serious accident involving a key team member on the Vital Signs Assessment project has delayed the launch of the online survey beyond October 1. It is anticipated that the assessment will be on line within a couple of weeks.

A page called Assessment Tools has been created on the Conference website at You’ll find it under “Quick Links” on the left side of the Home Page (and under “Resources” on the green navigation bar).
The Vital Signs Assessment link will be posted on the Assessment Tools page when the survey has been launched. You may want to check that page from time to time, although we also will notify you by way of an Instant Connection story when the link is available.
The Assessment Tools page is your source for all information related to the assessments of congregational and clergy vitality mandated by members at Annual Conference Session in June.
The page contains the link to the Lewis Pastoral Leadership Inventory (LPLI). The Council on Clergy Development is asking every pastor under appointment to a congregation in the Conference to take the LPLI during the month of October.
Also on the Assessment Tools page, the letter to churches from Blake Busick, Chair of the Committee on Congregational Revitalization, and the letter to pastors from Kathy La Point-Collup, Chair of the Council on Clergy Development.
