How do we define success in ministry? How do we distinguish whether a ministry is on track? Is it even quantifiable? These are not rhetorical questions; I am hoping that you take the time to respond.
Is success in Christian ministry quantifiable?
Jesus gave us two commands and one mission. We are to love God with our entire being, love our neighbor and make disciples. These are the primary objectives but how do you measure progress toward them?
Perhaps numbers can tell part of the story, but figures like attendance and giving may not be indicative of how well we are loving and making disciples.
Activities can tell part of the story, but even the best of us does good things for the wrong reasons from time to time.
