    Todd you are using an industrial model to measure church success. It looks like a lot of “how many’s”. People are not widgits to be counted and inventoried. I would suggest that this is a poor approach.

    A church, I believe, should be measured by how well it is known within it’s local community as a group of people meeting the needs of those around them. That is the model I see Jesus using. He met the people’s needs and THEN they listened to Him.
