Ministry Thoughts – Clarify the win

heavenroad

I’m really enjoying reading through the book: “7 practices of effective ministry.” I am being challenged to look at how effective ministry is done.

The first chapter is about finding the goal of ministry. The ultimate priority of the church is changed lives (“to make disciples”). This must be our first priority as the church. That is ultimately how you clarify a win for ministry.

Changed lives is simply the scoreboard for the church.

I think using questions like these will help in measuring success:

– Do attendees feel comfortable inviting their unchurched friends?

– How many people are connected to a small group?

– Do the people understand how to apply the scriptural truths we’re teaching in their daily lives?

What do you think? I’d like to know your thoughts.
