It used to be said that we measured churches by counting the nickels and noses, contribution and attendance. That’s where we spend a lot of time in discussion. Contribution and attendance are both easy to measure. It’s also easy to tell if you’re making progress. Are the numbers going up? Then we’re doing good.

But is there a more accurate measure of a churches health and growth? Is there an easy way to measure increasing maturity? What do we look for in a healthy church?
