MissionInsite Church Demographics
In response to our Mission to connect the District and its people, LutheranChurch Extension Fund has contracted with MissionInsite to provide a comprehensive and targeted demographic tool to all CNH District churches and ministries. This service is provided at NO COST to your congregation.
Through your desktop, web-based program, MissionInsite provides instant access to a wide suite of community information, easily tailored and filtered to research questions about the makeup, history and trends for your congregation's existing or potential ministry areas.
The MissionInsite program is accessed through the Internet using a common desktop browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari. Users must first register with MissionInsite to set up a user profile and identify their "home" congregation or ministry, and it is common for several people in a church to register with the service. Registration is free, and uses a common account set up by LCEF.
Through LCEF, as a CNH District congregation or ministry you have free, unlimited access to MissionInsite.
