Implementing Natural Church Development (iNCD), led by John and Lynn Chetcuti, is about seeing released, the potential that God has invested in our lives. NCD’s church survey is based on research covering more than 65,500 churches, from all denominations, large and small, established and new plants, across all six continents. It identifies universal principles affecting church growth, regardless of culture or spiritual style.

iNCD takes the next step in the church development process. Imagine you have taken your NCD survey and identified which key factors are most limiting the health and growth of your church. Ask yourself, “where do I go from here?”

Armed with the knowledge brought by the survey, you will be able to move your church forward towards healthy growth.  If you feel you would value some extra support, iNCD provides you with training and coaching customised for your needs. We are here to equip you with the tools you need to invest in your church’s health, community well being and growth potential.

NCD’s consultants and coaches are focused on helping you develop the quality of your church; precisely what God intends for His leaders. As a result of increased quality, God always builds His church and so we consequently see numerical growth, that appears to happen – “all by itself.” This emphasis on church health has proved to be the key to ongoing growth and multiplication.
