Last month I posted about measuring ministry differently for the new century.

In this video I want to talk about some other metrics for measuring church health.

We all know that “nickels & noses” doesn’t tell us if ministry is actually happening.

Neither do the following suggestions but at least they are more interesting:

  • Square footage (3,700 sq. ft)
  • Pounds (400 vs. 300 lbs)
  • Carrying Capacity
  • Bone Structure
  • Who is present not just how many are
  • Attendance patterns (150 for 88)
  • Giving patterns (200 or 1200)
  • Expectations on Specializations
  • Conversation Contribution

Just remember:

“Growth isn’t always good and bigger is not always better.”
