Frequently Asked Questions

You've got questions. We've got answers.

It can be a bit scary to take a step toward a research project. For the last 20 years, we’ve been alleviating those fears and providing Christian ministries with the information and advice they wanted—even when the questions seemed impossible to answer. That’s the Arbor Research Group niche—we find answers to the difficult questions!

Here are some of the questions we hear from potential clients. If you don’t see your question here, please reach out and we will get you an answer.

What kind of clients do you work with?

The Arbor Research Group is committed to helping Christian ministries and churches take their next best steps. We work with international ministries, local nonprofits, and churches of all sizes. We are unique among many consulting groups because we regularly work with churches that are smaller (or normal) in size and who minister in various ethnic contexts.

What is your turn around time?

Once you send us an inquiry, you will speak with an Arbor Research Group consultant within a few days. Within seven days after that, you will have an executive proposal that outlines our direction for your custom project. This includes the proposed design, time-frame, and fee structure for you and your team to make a decision. We typically can begin work within a few weeks after contract signing.

How are fees determined for a project?

All of our clients will tell you they appreciate our fee structure that is sensitive to the fiscal realities of Christian ministries and churches. Because our overhead is quite low, we only need to take care of a project’s direct costs and our consultant’s time.
