I’ve met very few pastors who are satisfied to have people involved only on Sunday mornings. Healthy churches know that discipleship requires engagement in two key areas: community and volunteer service. But just how well are you doing at connecting people to these two components? My experience is that very few leaders really know.
My latest eBook, Vital Signs: Meaningful Metrics That Keep a Pulse on Church Health, can help you measure success in four key areas: attendance, involvement, finances, and facilities. Regarding involvement, consider these two Vital Signs that can help you get a much clearer perspective…
Whether your discipleship model is built on small groups or classes, connecting people to community is critical to their growth. But what is a healthy level of involvement for a church your size? This is one of the Vital Signs discussed in the eBook.
You know how critical volunteers are to your church. If it weren’t for people willing to serve, you would hardly be able to function. But serving is just as critical to an individual’s discipleship as it is to your church’s operations. So how many people should be connecting to volunteer teams? This is another Vital Sign you’ll discover.
In addition to these two, Vital Signs reveals 10 more metrics. Each includes a range of benchmarks to help you assess your true health. You’ll have everything you need to get a fuller perspective about your church, develop a plan to improve it, and measure your progress over time.
