Mission Study Report – 2012

Over the course of a single year, MPC conducted an in-depth study to better understand the past, present and future of our church. What we discovered was both enlightening and confirming. We encourage everyone with a little time and a lot of curiosity to read what we learned by downloading the report in PDF format.

Background to the Report

Drawing inspiration from a substantial reading list on organizational structures and change, the Mission Study Team conducted qualitative and quantitative research with the congregation including Congregational meetings, one-on-one interviews, the survey, local church assessment, Montclair and Oakland demographic analysis, a review of MPC’s historical finances and membership, a survey of all of MPC’s committees, and a review of MPC’s history since the 1970s.

However, if you have any questions about the subject matter in one of the documents, it would be best to direct your question to the document’s creator who is listed on the front of the document itself. If that person can answer your question, terrific. If not, that person will bring your question to the group.

Thanks for your continued interest and care of MPC.
