Dear Orange County Church Goers,
Do you want to be a part of history-making in Orange County? My name is Shandell and I am a PhD candidate at Antioch University, and former Orange County resident. I am in the process of writing my dissertation. My topic is on religious racial socialization, or the way in which pastors talk to their members about racial and social matters.
The purpose of this project is to identify: 1) What type of messages Black Christian Pastors in Orange County California say about race and racial matters, 2) How parishioners interpret the messages, and 3) How members view their pastor’s leadership. This information is intended to help bring to light differences in how religious leaders racially socialize church goers.
As a part of this project I am asking you to participate in this online survey. Please click on the link below. The survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete, depending on the length of your responses.
Participants should be at least 18 years of age and attend church in Orange County. Please email me at [email protected] with any questions. To protect your privacy, please do NOT respond to this post.
