Faith Communities Today

Faith Communities Today is the public dissemination effort of a group of researchers and religious leaders who were responsible for, in 2000, the largest survey ever of congregations. This group, the Cooperative Congregations Studies Partnership, is a program of interfaith cooperation. These 25+ members, in conjunction with Hartford Seminary's Hartford Institute for Religion Research, are continuing their research efforts with a bi-annual national survey of congregations. 

This project is intended to gather information over time and assist congregational leaders in the effective use of quality research to improve their ministries. Our goal is provide a public profile of the heart and soul of religion in America — local congregations — at the beginning of a new millennium and to offer ways to strengthen and enhance the mission of these congregations.  The project was initiated to enhance the capacity of participating faith groups to conduct and use congregational research. This study is intended to provide continuing public profile of the heart and soul of religion in America — local congregations — throughout the new millennium.

Membership in the Cooperative Congregational Studies Partnership is open to religious organizations and denominational agencies that share CCSP's interests in producing and promoting research based resources for congregational development; in mutually enhancing the capacity of religious organizations to create and disseminate such resources through cooperative approaches; and in providing information and understanding to the public through the media role of congregations in American society.
