CFTROU 0020: Building a New Church Culture, Not New Church Programs: Metrics

This is part three of our four-part series called “Building a New Church Culture, Not New Church Programs.” Today we are going to talk about metrics and how they serve as a dashboard for creating culture. We will produce more of what we measure. We believe that key metrics are a means to assembling and building culture. Keep listening to hear how we measure things that help us build a great church culture.

Key Points:

  • Metrics set your church’s trajectory.
  • Understand the factors that shape church metrics.
  • Making your metrics outward focused and mission driven.
  • How metrics are both a means of discipleship and a by-product of discipleship.
  • Baptism as the entry point to discipleship.
  • Tying metrics to missional components within a church.
  • Measuring prayer and gospel conversations.
  • Teaching people to utilize tools available to them.

Metrics are really important because they help us set a trajectory of where our church is going. Click To TweetOur number one goal is to see more people following Jesus as His disciples.
