So, how’s that working for you?

Evaluation is the key to effectiveness, even in the church.

You have to ask … For each event, mission, or ministry that your church does:

  • What’s the return on investment?
  • How many unchurched attend?
  • How many have become connected with church members as friends (mentors into the faith)?
  • How many have attended worship?
  • And how many have become followers and been baptized?

One of the most difficult (and frustrating) parts of leadership is having to be honest about results … and about stopping doing something that is fun or a part of the church’s tradition when that something isn’t bearing measurable fruit.
