Research and evaluation help bring insight, facts, and understanding to congregations, synods, members and partner organizations throughout the Lutheran community.

Congregation Trend Report

Research and Evaluation compiles trend reports for all ELCA congregations. This information provides insights about a congregation which can be especially helpful during planning or the call process. For example, you can find a congregation trend report by looking up the congregation’s name on the ELCA’s map.
