The Center for the Study of Global Christianity is an academic research center that monitors worldwide demographic trends in Christianity, including outreach and mission. We provide a comprehensive collection of information on the past, present, and future of Christianity in every country of the world. Our data and publications help churches, mission agencies, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to be more strategic, thoughtful, and sensitive to local contexts.

In October 2020, the Center for the Study of Global Christianity moved to its new location on the campus of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. You can check out the ribbon cutting ceremony and a tour of the new facility here!
