The Minimum Factor Barrel

Our NCD research has shown that the minimum factor is an obstacle that stands in the way of improving the health of the local Church. However when the minimum factor is intentionally addressed and improved it increases the overall health in the Church.

The NCD Survey gives you results, where you will discover your minimum factor as well as the strengths of your Church.
