 Help needed regarding "Natural Church Development "

Dear SI members

This link is the web site for [url=http://www.ncd-international.org/public/index.html]Natural Church Development.[/url] Pages take a bit of time to load and there is a block on the cut/paste feature.

The author of this program to grow your church, Christian A. Schwartz, is German and lives in Germany. He reports 40,000 churches have participated world-wide. He reports results of churches that complete 3 profiles within 31 months: [url=http://www.ncd-international.org/public/FAQ-Results.html]Link here.[/url]

I know a lot about devising and reporting correlation research; e.g. what about the churches that dropped out before 31 months? I probably see the “red flags” most will see, although he speaks of grow as “grow-up” and other refreshing things. One flag was on the Q&A: [url=http://www.ncd-international.org/public/FAQ-Mistakes.html]Frequent mistakes: integrate NCD techniques into a theological framework that is not compatible with this approach.[/url]

[b]DOES ANYONE ON THIS SITE KNOW FIRST HAND OF A CHURCH THAT HAS USED THIS MATERIAL?[/b] I know of the difficulties in the Body of Christ in Germany from first hand reports of those returning from periodic trips there. Surely a church there, or near by, has used this.

A voice crying in the wilderness …. and praying
