Participate in RCMS 2010

Is your denomination or faith group participating in the 2010 edition of the Religious Congregations & Membership Study? Check this current list of participating groups to find out: RCMS 2010 Participation. If your denomination or faith group is not listed in this document please e-mail Rich Houseal, the RCMS 2010 Operations Committee Liaison, at rhouseal@nazarene.org. Please include your group's name, who to contact within your group (name and e-mail or address), and an estimate of the number of congregations and adherents within your group. We will respond with the necessary forms to ensure your group's inclusion in the study.

How does RCMS 2010 decide who to invite? Participation in RCMS 2010 is open to any religious group* in the US. To create our contact list we start with groups that have participated in any of the previous studies. We also go through the Yearbook of American & Canadian Churches and add those groups not already in our list. We also seek additional groups from the study’s advisory board and other experts in the field of US religious studies.

Will RCMS 2010 include independent churches? Yes. RCMS 2010 is conducting a special study of independent churches. If you would like to be sure that your independent church is included in the "Independent/ Non-denominational Churches - Estimate" count, please e-mail Rich Houseal, the RCMS 2010 Operations Committee Liaison, at rhouseal@nazarene.org. Please include your church's name, the county and state location of the building, and its membership and average worship attendance (if known).


*RCMS 2010 reserves the right to determine who/what qualifies as a religious group for the purpose of inclusion in the study.
