Survey: Understanding Barriers to the Unchurched Home > Survey: Understanding Barriers to the Unchurched The mission of NAAC is to transform unchurched people into radically committed and fully mature disciples of Jesus Christ. Therefore, we must understand if there is anything we are doing that hinders the unchurched from participating in our congregational life. How many unchurched friends or acquaintances (excluding family members) do you have in Chittenden County? Are there any things that happen in our Sunday morning worship service that make you feel hesitant to invite an unchurched friend or acquaintance? If so, what are they? Are there any issues regarding our building, landscaping, interior decor, or exterior that make you feel a little hesitant to invite an unchurched person to our Sunday morning worship service? If so, what are they? What are the things about our service that you really like and want to make sure they would happen on a Sunday morning when an unchurched friend of yours finally accepts your invitation and actually attends our service?
