About-

The Shape of Zion is a practical and functional resource that provides a public profile of the organizational backbone of black congregations within the United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church (USA), and historically black congregations including:
African Methodist Episcopal
African Methodist Episcopal Zion
Christian Methodist Episcopal
Church of God in Christ
National Baptist Convention of America
National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.
Progressive National Baptist Convention

Research for this resource was initiated to enhance the capability of religious denominations in the use of congregational studies. It will provide pastoral leadership with principles and guidance, allowing congregations to compare themselves to other faith groups and congregations. Questions for reflection, decision, and action are also included.
