The Numbers

This is to document my growth calculation results for CC which I used in my query of Ireland the other night:
Given: Christ Church grew from 500 to 5000 members in 10 years.  This comes from sworn testimony from Ireland
Using a re-arrangement of the NPV (Net Past Value) formulae, I calculated that Irelands CC business has had an Average Annulized Growth over that 10 year Interval of 26% per year.  Folks, this is not intuitive because it is not a linear relationship.  This is normal for any going concern in growth mode.
Assuming that past history is any indication of future results in terms of growth and applying the NFV (Net Future Value) equation to existing population of 5000 members in CC, one gets the following Projections:
1. In Three Years: Total Membership would be 10,000 (approximately)
2. In 5 Years it will be 16,000 members



These formulae are not taught in college courses for Civil Engineering (WITH an Environmental focus) nor for Organizational Leadership, are they?

That would explain why the Rev doesn't know, right?

I have a Biomedical Engineering Degree from Newark College of Engineering (NCE) which is now called NJIT (I guess I am giving my age away!)  Anyway, if I did not know how to do that sort of math comming out of high school, I never would have been accepted into any Engineering School.  This is real basic stuff.
