I am conducting research on Disciples elders for my D.Min thesis project, and I am requesting your assistance in reaching out to pastors and elders. Would you be able to place the news item below on your website or in your email newsletter? I would greatly appreciate your assistance. Thank you!

Survey for research project on Disciples elders
Lisa Gonzalez, a candidate for the D.Min degree at the Catholic Theological Union at Chicago, is administering a survey on Disciples elders, and is requesting participation from congregations in several regions. The survey of pastors and elders focuses on the roles and responsibilities of elders within the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), as well as the kinds of preparation people receive in order to take on the role of elder. The survey should take approximately fifteen minutes to complete, and participation is voluntary and entirely anonymous.
If you are a pastor or elder and would like to participate, you may read more information about the survey and participate in the survey itself at:
