Young Adult Survey

Your Opinion Counts!

Common Ground received a grant from the Minnesota Conference of the UMC to be used to research, develop and pilot a new effort to reach young adults (ages 18-30) in and around Cambridge, Minnesota. The vision of Common Ground is “Everyone Counts” and the mission is to be a “Christ-centered community living out profound inclusivity, authentic questions, and compassionate justice.” We cannot fully live out our vision and mission without a fully inclusive community; so we are serious about wanting to connect more deeply with young adults so we can share mutual learning and perspectives.

Here are three ways you can voice your opinion: 

Take the Survey

The first step in our process is to collect as much input as possible from young adults in our community as well as elsewhere. The easiest way to engage is to complete the on-line survey. Please consider sharing this link broadly to get as much input as possible. The survey will remain available through June 20.

Be Part of a Focus Group

We are also hosting focus groups using online video conferencing (Zoom). We are inviting anyone who considers themselves to be a young adult to join one of these calls to give input and have discussion with others.  The dates and times are listed as well as the link to join the meeting. It is not required, but is appreciated to email if you plan to attend.

Let’s Talk In-Person

There will also be some one-on-one conversations for those who really have some extensive feelings or perspectives. These are welcome and available on request. 

If you would like to set up a one-on-one conversation, please contact Steve Fredlund at or 651.587.5435.
