I talk a lot about church health and tracking metrics to honestly assess where you are. I wrote an eBook on the subject. The Unstuck Group has a whole service dedicated to helping churches assess health and get perspective for leading forward. Here’s why this matters so much:
Leaders often develop a vision for the future and set out to pursue it with the best of intentions, but too often they fail to assess their church’s current level of health and end up exhausted before anything significant changes.
Without a clear understanding of the underlying issues at your church and how to resolve them, the status quo will always return as the measure of success.
In order for a team to make long-term progress, it must begin with a clear understanding of its starting point. Like a doctor’s thorough report, metrics equip leaders with critical information to make better decisions for the health of their churches. And I believe your assessment is only as good as your tools. So, I’m excited to unveil something we’ve been working hard to bring you:
This new tool is a starting point for churches of any size who want to seriously begin evaluating their health. It’s a 100% online survey for the leadership of the church to complete. This is not a congregational survey; the results are based on actual church metrics — measurable data rather than the subjective opinions of leaders or members of the congregation.
We’ve loaded this resource with value:
- Our experienced team analyzes your church metrics and provides benchmarks to help you interpret where you are.
- One of our consultants will talk through your results with you, to help you clearly understand the next steps your church should consider based on its current health.
- ChurchNumbers is giving all churches who take the assessment a free trial of their metrics dashboard.
It’s a great tool. We use it with all of the churches we serve. And now you have access to it, too.
