About the Survey: 

This survey was developed as a tool for pastors and congregational leaders to use with your networks to assess Muslim sentiment in your communities. Once you register to use the survey, NEP may follow up with you to find out how you are utilizing the survey among your networks. Please let us know if we may help with anything related to administration of your surveys!  

This survey was developed in conjunction with several focus groups held in TN and NC in 2015-2016 to gauge evolving views from pastors on perception of, and engagement with local Muslims in their communities and perception of Islamic stereotypes in mainstream media and how that interfaced with how pastors accessed information about Muslim practices and traditions. 

We hope this will be a valuable tool that helps you to shed light on shifting attitudes in your communities on engagement with local Muslim communities.
