This assessment can be used in various ways to gather information from individuals about Bible usage, needs, and hopes. Groups of people could take this assessment at the same time together. Be sure to include people of all ages, those who attend worship and/or Bible study regularly and those who do not. You may wish to include people outside this faith community. Consider using the assessment in a conversational interview in person or by telephone or sent out to people in the faith community by mail or e-mail. Or if you have a church website, post the survey there and encourage people to take it online. Results of the assessment, which can be anonymous, can be reviewed by a study group in your faith community—such as a council, task force on education, or a Book of Faith group—to discover needs and plan accordingly.
