How can you get more informed about the state of your people and community?

The culture, needs, and desires in DFW are changing more rapidly now than ever. Barna Group has launched a year-long research project to discover what people think of, and want from, the Church.

Barna hosts live, online Forums to give local leaders a real-time taste of what their research is finding and an opportunity to connect monthly to figure out how to apply the insights alongside local experts and practitioners.

[COMING SOON: Themes & Dates of Upcoming Forums]

[COMING SOON: Past Forums' Recordings & Summaries]


State of THE Church

A donor-funded subscription to Barna Access Plus gives local leaders invaluable insight into relevant topics as we navigate these uncharted times:

  • Hybrid services

  • Connecting with members online

  • Reaching neighbors digitally

  • Needs of our youth and young adults

State of DFW

Barna Access Plus also gives you access to real-time insight into the state of the DFW Church and its people. This is part of a year-long research process that will unfold via the monthly Forums above.

Unite and our partners are here to help you place that research alongside other data sources to tell a complete story.

State of My Community

Collaborative, church-based work to foster flourishing is happening in communities across DFW. One role of these efforts is to understand the needs and assets of each unique area.

Find out here if there's a network in your community, and how they're telling that story.

State of My Issue

What's the biggest challenge facing your people or community? What is your church passionate about or already working to address?

Whether "your" issue is hunger, racial equity, or something else, there's likely a group of experts and practitioners working to monitor and tackle it locally.


State of My People

Customizable assessments allow leaders to find out how their people are doing in real-time as things continue to evolve. Learn More.

Click here to learn about our virtual Cost of COVID Event and in-person, role-play simulation, the "Cost of Poverty Experience." Both of these interactive formats bring the flourishing data and insights to life giving groups a much better understanding of how and why COVID is impacting every aspect of human flourishing, equipping them to do something to help, and creating a sense of community and accountability.

We're pleased to say that our team is not only offering this to churches and nonprofits but also schools and healthcare entities in DFW and beyond!
