We suggest that you set aside about 20-30 minutes to complete the inventory. We recognize that your time is valuable and it is important to note that once you start the inventory you must complete it - it is not possible to take part of the inventory and resume at later time. Due to the subject matter, it is intended to be completed in one sitting.

All completed surveys are due by Sunday, Feb. 18th.

If you do not have internet, need help connecting to the inventory or you do not have a computer,come into the church office and we will assist you.

For those who prefer to take the inventory “on paper”, please contact  the Church office.

Thank you for participating in this program.

Groundbreaking Research on Episcopal Spiritual Vitality

 

St. Philip’s joins 200 congregations and 12,000 Episcopalians in the RenewalWorks ministry to focus on spiritual vitality and foster a culture of discipleship.  “We have learned that there is great spiritual hunger among Episcopalians,” says RenewalWorks director, the Rev. Jay Sidebotham.

As reported by the online publication Episcopal Café, a research summary of spiritual life in the Episcopal Church has defined four stages of spiritual growth and practices. Among key findings from RenewalWorks inventories:

  • “Exploring Christians” – 18% of Episcopalians are searching or new Christians, but also some people who have attended church for decades.
  • “Growing Christians” – 55% of Episcopalians have committed to their spiritual growth.
  •  “Deepening Christians” – 23% can articulate a personal relationship with God; their life bears significant marks of their faith.
  • “Christ-Centered” - for 4% of Episcopalians, a personal relationship with God in Christ is the most important relationship in their lives.

The spiritual inventory we are now completing will indicate where St. Philip’s aligns on those measures and how the Faith Formation Ministry can best help nurture our spiritual health.
