Measuring statistics within churches can lead to positive change and growth. This book shows us how counting the right things can have a profound impact on ministry effectiveness.

- Publisher

Accurately counting the right things can profoundly impact ministry effectiveness. Knowing the story in the stats can inform decisions and lead to the things that produce the results most pleasing to God. Gathering and studying the right numbers can help a church wisely invest its resources of time, effort, people, money, and facilities. Effectiveness by the Numbers will help ensure that your church is measuring the right things for the right reasons. Counting what counts enables a church to fulfill its mission--making mature followers of Jesus Christ. 

Jesus and his disciples counted. They knew how many he fed with the five loaves and fishes. When a crowd gathered they often knew and recorded the number of men, women and children present for the event. The early church counted. They knew that on the day of Pentecost about 3,000 were added to their number. The book of Acts reports that many believed, people were added, and many of the Corinthians who heard him believed and were baptized. If Jesus counted and the early church kept track of numbers, it is not unreasonable to expect churches today to use metrics to increase their effectiveness in doing God's work on earth.

Chapter One: The Fear of Numbers
Chapter Two: If You Could Count Only One Thing
Chapter Three: How Many and How Often
Chapter Four: How Many Stick?
Chapter Five: How Many Serve?
Chapter Six: Who's New?
Chapter Seven: Growing by Staying Small
Chapter Eight: What's More Important than Dollars?
Chapter Nine: What Product Are You Producing Anyway?
