NCD has been used by many churches in our Convention as an instrument that assists congregations assess their health in eight key areas (leadership, ministry, spirituality, structures, worship services, small groups, evangelism, relationships). After identifying the congregation’s “minimum factor”, or its area of greatest need, NCD invites the congregation to take steps to improve in that area. NCD is a tool that is used in many denominations throughout the world and has a proven track record as an effective tool for assisting churches achieve greater vibrancy and health.
