NCD Research International

Our History

The Institute for Natural Church Development (NCD International) was founded in 1989 by the theologian Christian A. Schwarz. In the nineties it organized an extensive research project on the subject of church growth under the leadership of the social scientist and organizational psychologist Christoph Schalk. This laid the foundations for the present international ministry.

Over 1,000 churches in more than 32 countries took part in the original study. To date, 65,000 churches and Christian organizations from 70 countries have participated in our surveys. In all churches completing three or more surveys, the average growth rate increased by 51% between the first and the third surveys.

In 2010, NCD Research International was launched with the aim of making our database and our research expertise available to a broader public.
