Coding Instrument for PC(USA) Identity Survey Data

In the report that follows, I report on the dominant themes that emerged, which includes theology, governance, inclusion, tradition, politicization, education, world, mission, family, and emotion. I also comment on some potential issues we might have expected to be prominent, which are not. After that summary, I provide a description of coding instrument and then offer a brief conclusion. The main body of this report is followed by three appendixes. Appendix A consists of the coding instrument itself. Appendix B contains the quantitative analyses. And Appendix C offers a series of substantive questions prompted by the patterns identified in the quantitative and qualitative analyses, which may inform future research, policy or practice.
