Presbyterian Panel Survey February 2012: Current Issues in Church and Society - Summary

Panel logo

The Presbyterian Panel consists of three nationally representative samples of groups affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.): members, ruling elders serving on session, and teaching elders. For most analyses, teaching elders are split into two groups based on current call: pastors, serving congregations, and specialized ministers, serving elsewhere. These pages summarize major findings from the February 2012 survey on current issues facing the PC(USA) including:  the future of the church; knowledge of movements and initiatives in the PC(USA); 1001 new worshiping communities; cohabiting couples; same-sex issues, including sexuality and ordination; interest in leaving the PC(USA); congregational support for non-PC(USA) mission; congregational support for missionaries.
