Secret Guests

Stores use “secret shoppers” to assess their customer service which allows them to assess where they might provide improvements and where training might occur. Churches that wish to know how they are perceived by guests including their hospitality, inclusion, and openness will have an opportunity to find our as the East District launches its Secret Guest Survey!

The East District is still looking for lay persons willing to serve as “Secret Guests.” Secret Guests will be asked to visit a UM church, and then fill out an anonymous survey about the experience.

The anonymous survey would then be shared with the leadership of that church so that they may view their ministry efforts from a different perspective.

We are asking pastors to identify volunteers who would be ideal for this service! Please forward the volunteer’s contact information to the East District Office. A brief training will be provided.
