The consultants of Arbor Research Group have the expertise and skills needed to uncover answers to the questions that are keeping you from moving forward. Our team digs deeper into the data and presents you with more than just numbers. In the end, you’ll receive actionable insights and findings you can leverage to strategize for the future. Our past clients have developed into long-term partnerships because of the warmth, flexibility, and expertise our team brings to a project.
What you get from Arbor Research Group
Ministry AssessmentAnyone in leadership regularly asks the question, “How are we doing?” Aside from attendance or financial numbers, it’s a challenge to effectively answer that question. Our research processes reveal opinions, perspectives, and implications, providing you with a clear picture of your ministry’s effectiveness.
Custom Designed ResearchNo two challenges are the same, which is why we don’t use cookie cutter research strategies for our clients. We work with you to determine exactly what you need, and we design a plan exclusively for you. You’ll get the insights and information you need to help you move forward in your unique situation.
National ResearchOur research spans from coast to coast while we get down to “street level.” Our proven and unique qualitative methods have given prominent denominations and multi-national organizations actionable insights and findings they can leverage to strategize for the future across the country and world.
Practical OutcomesWhen you’re presented with the final outcomes from our study, you’ll find more than just graphs and numbers. Our in-depth research will reveal opinions, attitudes, behaviors, and insights (and even a few surprises) that allow you to use the information for making important decisions.
When was the last time you conducted an evaluation of your leadership or ministry? More than a leadership retreat where a handful of high-capacity leaders shared their perspectives, I mean a check-up on a variety of qualities related to your ministry. Do you feel like you know the direction your organization is heading and what is likely around the next corner?read more

He’s one of those people (and maybe you know someone like him) who can jump in a car, drive it, and know what the problem is.read more
