I received this in an email from an American colleague. If you are a woman in youth ministry do please have a look at their survey
Amy Jacober and I are doing research in preparation for a paper on women in youth ministry, which we hope to present at the January 2011 IASYM conference. We, along with Kara Powell, have analyzed the results of the US version of our survey which was launched last November. We now hope, with your help, to see how women youth workers in other settings both understand and experience youth ministry. Our projected January 2011 paper will be a comparison and analysis of the US survey (947 respondents) with those who respond to this invitation.
The survey covers a wide range of topics. As you will see, we have focused some questions on issues relating to youth ministry and feminist ideologies and how these have intersected in your experience as a youth worker.
We know your time is valuable. We ask you to invest some of that precious time here. It will take about 10 minutes if you just answer the “click on the appropriate choice” questions. If you want to say more, however (and we hope you will) there is ample opportunity in the survey to narrate to your heart’s content.
We hope you’ll find the questions themselves interesting. Some questions may make you mad. If the later is the case, we want to hear about it.
Just click on the link or cut and paste into your browser.
If you want to see the research paper that will come out of this survey, you can indicate as such at the survey’s end.
Thank you! We expect the results of the survey to be of help to women in youth ministry (volunteer or paid) as well as those who do youth ministry education.
