In our last blog post I wrote about the amazing ways that judicatories have stepped up in the face of these unprecedented times. Today I want to consider how your judicatory can help you as you look to the future of your ministry.

Combining data with anecdotal information has perhaps never been more important. We support this work in several ways:
MapDash for Faith Communities Subscription
MapDash is a powerful missional assessment and planning platform with interactive demographic map layers and analysis tools to identify the “real world” make-up of your communities. If your judicatory has a MapDash subscription, ask them to help you identify key demographics for your community. If they don’t have a subscription, there are helpful alternatives such as the ones below…or you could encourage your judicatory to get a MapDash for Faith Communities subscription to support all the ministries of your judicatory.
