Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Discernment and Planning Survey 

Dear Friend of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship (CICW),

Thank you for your participation in some or perhaps many aspects of our work over the past 21 years! During the next calendar year, we will again be engaging in a process of discernment and planning. We do this with profound gratitude for all the ways that past collaborative processes have challenged and inspired us. We would be deeply grateful if you would participate with us in this process by completing the brief survey form

To help you, you can read our mission statement, core commitments, and programming highlights (see the links below). 

If answering these questions prompts additional thoughts about our planning for the future, we welcome your insights at cicwdir@calvin.edu. Please know that we will prayerfully receive and carefully consider your input.
