The Transforming Church Insight [TCI] is a tool our church is using to gather input from our members and attendees on a variety of topics including: Communications, Outreach, Member Satisfaction, Financial Matters and others. Please take time between now and October 16 to take the survey. We want your input! You can take it online by following the instructions below.


Thank you for participating in this valuable tool for our church. The tabulated results of this survey will help our church in its strategic planning process by identifying our church’s strengths, as well as opportunities for improvement. This survey was developed by TAG, a research and consulting firm located near Washington, D.C that we have used over the past four years as we have worked to become a healthier church. Each member of a household (16 years and older) should respond.

Taking the Survey

Do not labor over your decision – your first instinct is usually right. The survey will take you about 20-30 minutes to complete. You will need to complete the survey in one sitting. Your responses will be completely confidential. If you are ready to begin, then follow these basic steps:

  1. Log on to the website: TAKE ME TO THE SURVEY
  2. Enter your church’s Password: uppc
    This password is the same for everyone in your church. Once the survey period has been completed, the survey will be closed and you will not be able to log on.
  3. Answer each question according to the instructions. When you have finished each set of questions, click “Next” at the bottom of the page. You may use the “Previous” and “Next” buttons to navigate pages and change your answers at any point while you are logged on. When you click “Finish” on the last page, your answers will be saved and you cannot change them.
  4. Each member of a family, age 16 and older, should participate individually. 

Frequently Asked Questions 

  1. I can’t get to the website. 
    1. If you have trouble with this, make sure that you have pasted the full URL into your browser (https://www.research.net/r/TAG_TCI_UniversityPlacePresbyterianChurch).
  2. I can’t log on. 
    1. Make sure that you have selected the appropriate link to your church and typed the password exactly as it appears. 
  3. I can’t get past page one – it keeps taking me back to the beginning. 
    1. This is a problem with the way that your computer’s security features / network firewalls are configured. TAG cannot help you with this. The problem is with your computer or network, not with the survey.
  4. What should I do if I don’t know the answer to a question?
    1. Just leave that question blank. It will not skew the results. The composite score for each question is calculated by the number of participants who answer any given question, not by how many participants take the survey.
