So, I was reading a pastor’s remembrance of the “launch” of his church. When the church first launched he was concerned because there were less than twenty people for him to preach to, and the offering was just over $100. Because of those numbers, he didn’t think the church would succeed.
Apparently, he measured success (at least in part) based on the number of people in his audience and the amount of money they gave to his ministry.
How would you measure the success of a church?
