Findings from the National Congregations Study Project

The NCS project was conducted in two waves. The first survey took place in 1998, and the second was conducted in 2006-07. These two surveys made it possible to answer some key questions about U.S. congregations for the first time, including member distribution characteristics, the shape and content of worship services, the quality of the relationships between local congregations and their denominations, levels of community involvement, and how activities vary based on differences in social and organizational characteristics. What do congregations look like today? What do congregations do? Find out how they stacked up in Wave One of the study.
