Scholarly Articles about Congregational Life

This resource has many scholarly writings interpreting the results of the National Congregations Study (NCS). The NCS was the first nationally representative survey of U.S. congregations and examined the work, programs, activities and changes of America’s religious congregations in two waves, in 1998 and in 2006-07. Director Mark Chaves of Duke University and other researchers wrote the insightful resources about worship, politics, social services, family and welfare reform. This selected list of articles is well worth checking out at http://www.soc.duke.edu/natcong/study.html.
