State of Your Network

This year, Barna is launching an exciting new initiative called State of the Church. If you lead an association, denomination, city movement, parachurch, or any organization on a mission to serve churches, we want to give you tools to know the state of your network, help your churches see how they are doing, and put your essential resources into the hands of the churches you serve.

Register Network

Get insights about your network with technology you can trust.

Anchored in Barna's historical research about what's really behind human flourishing and thriving churches, you'll access game-changing insights about your member churches, inform strategy, deploy resources to members, and grow membership with ease.
