Proof in numbers

Proof in numbers

If you're interested in church health, you know that the number of names in a database isn't a great indicator. Same goes for mailing lists and Sunday attendance numbers.

What you're really looking for is discipleship. You want to know if people in your church are growing in their love for Jesus, each other, and the world around them. Of course, this isn't a simple thing to measure, and it's impossible to force. But The City is built around encouraging the kind of community engagement that helps a church build a culture of discipleship.
