Have you ever wondered how to make good use of all the population and demographic data available about your community? Do you know what lifestyle data is? Would you like to know how to interpret the data and better understand the community where you church is located? Then this webinar is for you. “Understanding Your Community” is a FREE webinar in the Churchnet Leadership Series. It is designed for pastors, church staff and lay leaders interested in learning about demographics and lifestyle data. Where can you get this type of information for your church? What can the data tell you about your community? What do all those numbers really mean? Join us for this webinar and see how important these resources can be to really understanding your community. The seminar will provide an overview of a Missouri community, but the same information shared during the webinar is available for your community wherever you are located in our state. We are delighted to have Clay Price leading this webinar. Clay is one of the most gifted interpreters of demographic data in Baptist life.
