Data-Driven Decision Making: The Disciple Maker Index

The Disciple Maker Index (DMI) is a survey tool, created by Catholic Leadership Institute to:

  • Allow parishioners to reflect upon their spiritual growth and discipleship;
  • Identify the ways in which the parish effectively supports that growth and look at opportunities to support that growth more in the future;
  • Provide valuable input to help pastors and parish leaders make decisions and plan effectively;
  • Help pastors and parish leaders have a sense of where to focus their evangelization efforts.

The Disciple Maker Index looks at spiritual growth through several different themes:
Attitude and Belief Questions: Connections with the local Catholic/parish community, spiritual growth, personal beliefs, and conversations about faith.
Participation Questions: How frequently do parishioners participate in various parish activities?
Relationship/Satisfaction Questions: Parishioners’ satisfaction with their parish, pastor, and parish activities.
Demographic Questions: Understand parish communities and who is responding to the survey.
