NEW METRICS FOR THE CHURCH
(Verge Disciplemaking Course/Jeff Vandersteldt)

“What are the primary metrics we’re using to determine whether or not we are being faithful to Jesus’ command for the church?” If you don’t rethink your metrics, you won’t reorder your behaviors. If your metrics are primarily attendance and church size, you don’t have reproduction at the heart of what you’re doing. Reproduction, if that was at the heart, you would say, “How many disciples are making disciples? How many people are being sent? How many people are being released to new places?” That’s the stuff we’d start to measure.
