Taking the TCAT


This page is designed to help each person who is invited to take the survey with your church.

You will want to provide your church's PASSCODE in any email or communication that invites them to participate. 

If you have been invited to participate in your church's Transformational Church Assessment, you are in the right place!

You should have received a PASSCODE from your church.
A few things to remember about the PASSCODE:
  • Everyone in the church uses the same PASSCODE

  • You will use this PASSCODE only one time to register and to take the TCAT.

  • If you need to log back in later, you will use the username and passWORD you create during registration. 

Let's get started!

  • Your individual responses are confidential, so your church will not know what your answers are even though your name will be listed in the user list. If you are still concerned about confidentiality, you can create an anonymous username, first name, last name, etc. Just remember to note what they are in case you need to log back in later.

  • It is important to accurately provide gender, age, and zip code for demographic information. 

  1. Go to TransformationalChurch.com to register 

    • Enter your church's PASSCODE in the silver box on the right side of the screen.Registering for the Transformational Church Assessment Tool, LifeWay Research, TCAT

  2. Complete the registration page

    • All usernames must be unique. Typically a combination of letters and numbers works best.

    • Please make a note of the username, password and email address you use to register.

    • If you ever forget your password, you will need these to change the password.

  4. Take the Survey

    • Ideally you would want to take it at one time, but it will save your answers at the bottom of each page. So, if you have to come back later, you won't have to start from the beginning. (Just remember your username and password to log in on the LEFT side the next time.)

    • Even if you are unsure of an answer, select the answer that best fits your perceptions of your church.

    • Your church will be best served by establishing an accurate benchmark of the perceptions of the congregation which can lead to charting an effective course for greater transformation!

    • A response is required for all questions to enable accurate scoring for your church unless they are marked as "optional."
