Center for Analytics, Research & Development and Data (CARDD)

We are a church-wide resource whose task is to gather, provide, and interpret information and trends for the purpose of illuminating the past, realizing the present, and envisioning the future of the United Church of Christ in the larger context.

“CARDD provides excellent content, and its continuing efforts provide critical understanding of today’s issues that must be addressed by all of us. It’s a four-star reality that keeps on growing!!”
