Church Innovations Institute’s research spans over 20 years across many denominations and several continents (click here to learn more about the span of our research). It marries reported statistics with organic story and memory, effectively narrating the numbers of particular places. The churches and other organizations we work with gather the data themselves.

CI’s research mission: innovate the capacities of any church to listen deeply for numbers and stories that can help them discover God at work in their community and give them lead time to find their role in God’s mission and thrive into the changes of the world God so loves.

  • innovate the capacities God has already given you
  • see the preferred and promised future God has for you
  • grab a job in that future beside partners God is introducing to you
