NEXT Research is dedicated to conducting quality research and producing reports on the future of the church, with special emphasis on leadership, disciple-making, and church multiplication in North America and around the world.
Staring in 2023 we will establish an annual portfolio of research projects that maintains a strong missiological focus on the future of the church. The empirical research will include both qualitative and quantitative methods. Case studies and mixed methods studies, as well as historical and theological approaches will be utilized.
NEXT Research is a collaborative partnership between Leadership Network (LN), Exponential, and Asbury Theological Seminary (ATS) along with other partners to help expand the reachfand impact of the research.
