College-Age Ministry Survey 


The College-Age Moravian Ministry Team has created a survey to help us improve ministry and get feedback on new ideas for serving this age group. If you identify as a college aged Moravian (roughly 18-25), we want you to share your opinions with us! If you know someone who fits this age range, please pass this survey along to them. We will be collecting responses until the end of May, and look forward to listening to what you have to say!
