Jonathan Falwell on ‘ministry measurements’.
In a post over at the Christian Post, here is some of what he had to say:
“I believe that we have self-imposed measurements of success that are skewed, that are wrong… The measurements of success are all messed up.”
While there is nothing wrong with the “Top 25” or “Top 100” largest churches or most influential lists, trying to make it to those lists has forced many pastors to focus on the masses rather than “the one.”
“Stop focusing on the ‘big ministry’ and the ‘big outreach,” he urged, noting that ministers place too much pressure on themselves. “Start focusing on one person, one hurting person, who’s lost, … who’s desperate to hear the Gospel.”
“We have a responsibility to minister to the one.”
