I have some encouraging news to share!
For the last two years, The Moody Church has participated in the Best Christian Workplaces Institute’s engagement survey, which helps Christian churches and non-profits understand their organization’s health and employee engagement in order to identify blind spots and build a flourishing workplace culture. Because we believe healthy ministry flows from a healthy team, we’ve been grateful for their help. Last year was our first time participating in the survey, and the results we received clarified our key strengths and underlined some significant areas needing improvement. Our Elders and senior staff took the results to heart and got down to work. We endeavored to become better listeners and more intentional in cultivating our staff culture.
Just a few days ago, we received the results of our second engagement survey and learned that The Moody Church had such healthy results from our employee feedback that we’d been certified as one of the Best Christian Workplaces for 2022. I can’t tell you how delighted I am to see such marked improvement in such a short period of time. It’s a testimony to the accumulative effects of a lot of team building that has occurred throughout the year and at every level of our organization. As a church leadership, we’re so grateful for the ways God is growing us as a church, not just in the ministry we’re doing, but in the team we’re becoming. Serving Jesus is truly a team effort.
I thought you’d enjoy hearing the good news. Let’s give God the glory.
Because we are loved, more than we know!
