The primary resources for church growth modelling are published papers, especially:

These papers are peer-reviewed within the mathematical modelling and sociological communities.

Introduction to Church Growth Models

The online simulation Building a Church Growth Model talks through the basics of modelling church growth. It uses user-friendly system dynamics diagrams as a substitute for mathematics.

The article: Tipping the Church into Growth, gives an overview of the model and its implications for church leaders and workers.


The church growth models are built on previous work in mathematical modelling, system dynamics and sociology.

See the REFERENCES PAGES for a literature guide.


The church growth models are examples of dynamic modelling. See the MODELLING PAGE for the basics of model construction.
