One of the questions that plagues small-group directors and pastors is this: How will we know if we’re successful? In other words, how will we know that we’re accomplishing our vision for small groups? The easy—and difficult—answer is that we must track certain metrics to see trends in our ministries. At the same time, we can’t live and die by the numbers. This resource will help you determine the kind of data that would be useful to measure in your ministry and also give you practical ideas on how to collect and analyze that data. It’s perfect for small-group directors to use on their own, or you can use this in a team of key ministry leaders.
