No one sets out to have or lead an unhealthy church or ministry. But often we find ourselves stuck in a loop of numbers and metrics that we may have inherited or are imposed on us by the “higher-ups”. In this episode we discuss how Jesus’ ministry career would measure up to current ministry standards and performance reviews.
Jesus was immeasurably the most successful person in human history. In every way. Yet, if we were to measure his lifetime effectiveness using today’s current standards, he would probably find it hard to get hired on at most churches.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- What are the “3B’s” of church health and why they may be toxic in the church
- How our standards to measure church success are so different than Jesus’
- This biggest difference between small groups and missional communities
- Why small groups tend to create a false sense of community
- Why there’s a good chance you are approaching small groups from a “consumer” mindset and how to change that
Your church or community really can shift toward missional engagement. By changing what you measure you’ll begin to change your focus to accomplishing the Church’s true mission and its ultimate purpose.
