Childrens-Ministry-Parent-Survey-Child-Holding-Adult's HandOne of the main reasons new members join a church is the need to give their  children a sound biblical education. That's where a children's ministry parent survey comes into play. 

Each parent has a different idea of a "sound biblical education." That's why it's so important to get input on your Sunday school curriculum. But what questions should you ask in your Sunday school survey for parents? Finding the right questions is tough. That's why we built out a sample of a children's ministry parent survey.

The Sunday school survey for parents template can be a great starting point in building your own church survey. Or, you can use it as is to save time.

So, don't wait a second longer on getting the needed input from parents. Embark upon the most crucial mission of guiding children on a journey of faith.
