How to start a Natural Church Development survey?

Contact: Please contact NCD via: or: +316-10008238. The NCD office can supply you with the necessary information.

Facilitator: As a church you appoint a facilitator who supports  the proces. The facilitator gets an account from NCD Netherlands. The facilitator can start the survey and finish it via this account.

Survey The facilitator sends invitations to the church members to fil in the survey via the website. Also he can ask them to reply on paper and enter the results himself. The website supports this. We advice to repeat the survey every 1 to 1,5 year.

The facilitator starts the generation of the results after the surveys are filled in.  This generates the Basic Result with the 8 bars. Under detailed results the facilitator can generate the Result Guide with detailed results.

Follow up On the website you find further instructions how to work with the results.
