Nazarenes want to be effective in their ministries. To be effective, we follow God’s directions and use the tools He’s given us. One of these tools is good research.

The Research Center exists to give the Church of the Nazarene a clear understanding of its accomplishments and its challenges. We have websites that help local churches track what they have done in recent years. Other sites help us apply what we’re learning to the ministries we are planning.

Please explore this site and use its resources to help you in your ministry. You can locate a Church of the Nazarene near your new home. You can check the growth of any of our churches around the world. There are comparisons to national populations and maps of Nazarene boundaries. If you enjoy conducting studies yourself, you may want to join ANSR (Association of Nazarene Sociologists and Researchers). And if you don’t find what you’re wondering about on these pages, contact us and tell us how we can help.
