Hey Brady, quick question (from south Germany)! Love the idea and are very willing to implement it.
I'm right now wondering how to insert the numbers and get a reasonable result. E.g. I have one decision for christ in a week an have 10 points for that it is 10 points. So far so good. I also want to track service attendance (or small group attendance or anything with a much higher count number). But if I type in 100 as service attendance with the factor 6 I will get 600. The most important thing - people finding Christ - is rated with 10, a way less import number overwhelms with 600.
Do you have a smart solution for that?
Thank you Brady... this is seriously the best metrics tool I have seen in all my many years of ministry! Your metaphor of the meaningless metric of weighing ourselves is how I have always felt about just measuring the three 'B's (Buildings, Bucks & Butts on seats). Your tool helps us measure the things that are at the heart of our discipleship journey as Jesus' followers.
The church's purpose should be defined by the cycle of harvest:
-Call people to Jesus and thus into the Kingdom
-Establish the newly converts in Kingdom principles
-Help them find their place in calling more people into the Kingdom this making them disciples
-Turn them loose to call more to Jesus and thus into the kingdom
i am starting a ministry in the philippines in a post pandemic world and these topics will be of great help. i look into the website and check also the month subscription it cost a lot in comparison to ph. pesos we hope there are different price list for different parts of the world to make it more accessible all over the globe. thanks again.
I made it to the end.. I am not the pastor of my church but I support our pastors very much. Because of the pandemic our church migrated to online with live streams of our weekly service but I know it's just a pivot out of necessity. We have a vision for church growth but without church attendance to rely on, we don't know how to know if we are growing. This video definitely gave me a fresh perspective which I am excited to share with my pastors! Thank you for the work you do Brady! Will definitely share how it pans out with our church!
Brady, I like your ideas very much and will mull more on them. A question though; why are there so few inner life disciplines in your list of actions? I know they are difficult to measure but I think that's part of the topic here. Things like prayer, silence, Scripture, solitude, fasting and sabbath-keeping are THE foundation of much of our external actions indeed serving in any way cannot be 'counted' as a win unless we're sure it is done from good motives. . . . thoughts?
Just had a 2 hour convo with someone about this today, and then this vid popped up! So good & very timely man... I wish more people knew how to use their ChMS to track this stuff. Once I figured out how to use forms, workflows, & lists in PCO to keep track of people going through Growth Track, signing up for a small group, serving, etc, it was like a whole new world of metrics opened up and it’s been so rewarding. Our church launches in 7 weeks and our systems are ready to go 💪🏼👏🏼 Pray for us bro, pandemic church planting isn’t the easiest 😂
I am highly skeptical when people say "Church Growth". I listen with a very cynical ear, if I listen at all. Since I am subscribed to this channel, I know you ain't all bad ;) . This idea is not too bad. It's not some gimmick program. It's not even a program. It's just a tracking method that allows me to track what I want to track and weight it accordingly.
Our Sunday morning service is either drive-in and sit in your car, get out of your car and sit in the grass, go inside (with reservations and spaced out seats), or stay home and watch everything online. A couple of adult small groups are meeting or you can watch online. No children's ministries at all. Tracking online participation is impossible, unless you cracked that code on your Nucleus site.
I agree, this is a time that we can completely rethink how we are doing ministry, since we cannot do hardly anything we were doing before.
Thanks Brady. Great stuff here. We were in the process of planting and getting ready to do some community outreach and preview services when the pandemic hit. So we started doing online services 🤷🏻♂️.
The question has been "how do we actually plant a church when we are still not known to our community?" Online feels so over-satured and connecting with people has been difficult. Especially because we want to reach unreached people.
