PC (USA) Research Surveys
As part of its regular work, our denomination, the Presbyterian Church (USA), regularly collects information from church members. This information is used to guide and direct denominational work. These surveys are one way for you to make your voice heard by our denomination. The PC(USA) is conducting several surveys over the next few months to compliment the work of the General Assembly from 2022. As they are applicable, please take a moment to fill out the surveys.
The first survey covers marriage and romantic relationships, family structures, and expressions of gender identity. The surveyors recognize that some of these topics can be sensitive, so they encourage respondents to skip any questions with which they are uncomfortable.
Please use the link below to provide helpful demographic information to the denomination!
