Pastoral Ministry Review 2023

It is time to complete a review of Joel Beachy’s pastoral ministry at East Union Mennonite Church. We are using a survey form to gather feedback from the congregation. Joel will be completing a self-review using the same form. Once we have received your feedback, we will create a summary document outlining the themes that emerge from your responses. We will NOT include any names or direct quotes in this summary. The summary document will first be shared with Joel, the Elders, and Church Council. Once this is completed, we will share a summary with the congregation.

The goal of this process is to improve the ministry of East Union by strengthening the relationship between Joel, as pastor, and the congregation, as we all seek to carry out East Union’s mission.

We will only consider signed responses. This will allow us to contact you if we have any questions. We welcome comments from church members and attenders. As you complete the survey questions, we ask you to write with a spirit of care, humility, and grace while still being truthful to your personal experience.

You may complete this online survey by clicking here, OR you may use a hard copy of this survey by clicking here. If you choose to complete the survey online, please be sure to click on the “submit” button at the bottom of the page. If you choose to use a hard copy, please print it, complete it, (remembering to sign it on the back side) and return the survey form to the box under the mailboxes no later than Sunday, February 26th. Do not complete both, as these are the same questions. Please do one or the other. The pastor job description is available by clicking here.
