Where Data Becomes Information

One System. Unlimited Possibilities.

MissionInsite’s proprietary cloud-based technology platform is designed specifically for church, faith-based and nonprofit leaders. It bridges the gap between data and actionable information by answering the “where” and “what about” questions about your organization and community.

MapbMissionInsite is an easy-to-use, geo-demographic mapping interface built on Mapbox technology. There is no software or hardware for your organization to download or maintain additional licenses to purchase. No specialized training is required. It can be deployed to as many users within the organization as needed.

MissionInsite answers “where” questions about your members, donors, users, locations, boundaries, housing developments, special programs and community at large. By visually presenting the locational relationships, questions are answered and decisions can be made – simply and easily.

MissionInsite provides three distinct but interwoven perspectives. Each perspective enables your organizational leadership to better understand the information presented and discover the solutions.

Religious Survey of American Beliefs, Preferences and Practices

The Quadrennium Project is a national religious survey of American beliefs, preferences and practices conducted every 4 years. There are two reports in the Quadrennium Survey series for 2017. The first report is called ReligiousInsite. It provides insights into community beliefs and religious preferences. The
second report is called MinistryInsite. The focus of this report is on practical applications of the 2017 survey. It includes life concerns, reasons for non-participation or considered nonparticipation in a religious congregation or community and a list of preferred ministries or programs–all of which is based upon the very specific profile of the study area.

One final innovation for this survey version is the “Priorities” reports for each of the larger reports. In ReligiousInsite Priorities and MinistryInsite Priorities—using MissionInsite analytics—our highly customized priority lists zoom the reader into the heart of their study area concerns: program and ministry preferences for targeted ministry applications.

ComparativeInsite

The ComparativeInsite report provides an organization with a broad comparison of the demographic profile of a defined mission area with the demographic profile of an organization’s core people. It accomplishes this by matching a select set of variables from within the Experian Mosaic Segment of a study area with that part of the study area in which an organization’s core people reside. To accomplish this, a Mosaic Profile of both the study area and the organization’s core people is generated within the MissionInsite PeopleView System.
