Every Monday morning the Church Community Builder leadership team gathers to review our numbers from the previous week. Like you, we are passionate about what we do because of the chance to make an impact in this world we live in. The stories we hear about churches we have helped is what truly inspires us, not numbers, statistics, and data.
However, we can often use the human elements of ministry as an excuse for ignoring important numbers. Data, statistics, and numbers directly reflect what is happening within and through your ministry. Our “weekly numbers review” is what helps us really know that we are making a measurable difference in the lives of those who serve with us and the churches we partner with.
A few weeks ago, we released a FREE download (available on our Facebook page) that explains how your church can use the important numbers to measure the health of your church community.
Here are the 9 areas we covered which help you assess health via church member engagement and retention:
By tracking these 9 key areas, you will learn what needs to happen in order to increase the retention of people and the health of your church. You can learn more about each factor and how your church can specifically improve upon each one by downloading the full free resource The Numbers Game.
Of these 9 areas, what surprised you? Is there any area that you hadn’t considered tracking before?
