Church Statistics  (Please give the information for the year 2016.) 

We want to assemble a movement-wide picture of what happened in the FMCiC in 2016. We want to celebrate.  We want to be aware of challenges.  We want to research trends.  To do this well, we need the following statistical information please.

The FMCiC’s vision is “to see healthy congregations within the reach of all people in Canada and beyond”.  The LifePlan is the best tool that we have been able to develop.  If you are using it and have suggestions for improvement, please put them in the space below.  If you have found a better alternative Church Health tool, please be sure to put that information below is well.
