Natural Church Development

A Tool for Developing Healthy, Growing Churches

The Natural Church Development community, based in Germany, includes over 40,000 churches in 60 countries around the world committed to being healthy, growing congregations.

The NCD survey profiles the church’s health in eight key areas of church health, and the NCD resources guide the congregation through a process of increasing the quality of its health, often increasing the quantity of its growth.
