Become a Mystery Guest

Do you really pay people to go to church?   

Yes, you really can get paid to go to church!  Since 2008, Faith Perceptions has been sending individuals (sometimes called secret shoppers, mystery shoppers, mystery worshipers, mystery visitors, etc.) into churches to provide us with unbiased and constructive feedback on their experience. Their feedback helps our clients understand how welcoming they are to outsiders, and it also helps them do a better job of engaging and connecting with their visitors. If you like helping, don’t mind giving your opinion, and you want to be paid to do it, then we’d love to have you join our team of thousands of other mystery guests across the country. 

What will I have to do? 

Attend the church service you signed up for, pick up a church bulletin while you’re there, and then complete our online survey detailing your experience. Pretty straightforward. 

How do I get started?

Just go here and complete our short application. If you're already a mystery guest, you can sign in below. Once you're registered, you can log in at any time and see opportunities near you. 

How do I know that this is legitimate? 

We've been doing this for almost decade and are a trusted member of MSPA and have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau where we're listed under our parent company, Hendrickson Business Advisors.

If you have more questions, check out our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page.  If you don't find the answer there, or have further questions about the application process, please email us at or call us Monday-Friday between 9:00AM and 5:00PM Central Time at 573-335-1782. We're more than happy to talk with you about our program.

"Faith Perceptions makes it easy to schedule visits right on your computer. You pick the time and place. After visiting the church website, completing the survey, and scanning the program (you can take a picture on your phone and email to yourself), a check is mailed directly to your home. Easy! Faith Perceptions keeps track of your visits so you don't duplicate them. Plus - have a question? They are quick to respond to any concerns or questions you might have. Faith Perceptions is very easy to work with, their website is easy to navigate and of course I really enjoy seeing different churches and congregations." - Valerie F.
