NCD Canada aims at growing healthy, vibrant churches.

Participating churches complete an annual survey to identify their strengths as well as opportunities for growth in eight essential areas:

  • Empowering
  • Leadership
  • Gift-Oriented Ministry
  • Passionate Spirituality
  • Effective Structures
  • Inspiring Worship Service
  • Holistic Small Groups
  • Need-Oriented Evangelism
  • Loving Relationships

 NCD is one tool offered to churches to encourage, enable and equip people for ministry. It is a long-term process that emphasizes quality of growth over quantity of growth. The diocese launched a three-year NCD Initiative in 2012. Following are some resources used in that initiative.
