Take Our Survey on Mentoring for Thriving in Ministry in the City

New York Theological Seminary Survey on Mentoring for Mentoring for Thriving in Ministry in the City Invitation & Consent Form


Survey Purple

New York Theological Seminary with support from the Lilly Endowment is engaged in a multi-year project on “Mentoring for Thriving in Ministry in the City.”  As part of the project we have introduced mentoring into all pastoral degree programs.  Students have one-on-one mentors assigned to work with them for up to two years.  We are also teaching students how to be mentors to others.  Our goal is to help current and future pastors thrive in urban ministry by increasing the effectiveness of mentoring in their ministries.

To support our efforts, we want to learn more about mentoring for pastoral leadership in urban ministry.  To this end, we would like to invite you to participate in our research study about mentoring and thriving in urban ministry by completing an online survey.  The questionnaire will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.  The information you provide will help us understand what current practices are going on in mentoring, and how they support thriving in urban ministry.

The survey is anonymous.  Your name will not appear anywhere in it.

If you agree to participate in this survey, please indicate so by emailing the statement “I agree to participate in the survey” and your full name to:  thriving@nyts.edu.  Your name and reply email will constitute your consent.
