Resources for Ministries
In May of 2000, Finishers Project began collecting information in a database form on its website. The total number of family units (last names) currently stands at 9,315. The total number of individuals, including spouses, is 14,177. An up-to-the-minute summary of results is generated from this live database. The results can be viewed on the Profile Summary page.
Finishers offers individuals the opportunity to take part in a 10-question Survey to help them put their ministry service into perspective. Upon completion of the Survey, they receive a paper on "Finding Your Calling" and are able to compare their answers with thousands of others who are exploring opportunities in ministry. The Survey results can be viewed on the Survey Summary page.
Finishers has conducted two surveys to help evaluate the effectiveness of its ministry; one in 2006 and again in 2008. The survey was sent to over 6,000 individuals and couples. The results of these surveys are provided on the Polling Insights page.

Finishers Project commissioned a survey in 1998 to establish how people might receive information and what the perceived barriers are by the evangelicals in missions-minded churches to serve in missions. These were judged the most likely to be open enter missions as a next career. The survey results are expressed both graphically and textually, and each question on the survey is listed verbatim.
