“Just 9 percent of pastors said their church thoroughly evaluates its efforts – and a majority of leaders admit that evaluation never occurs or is ineffective when it does. One of the unfortunate outcomes is that many pastors lose objectivity about their ministries. . . What tools and methods do you use to evaluate yourself, your ministry and your church as candidly and accurately as possible? What’s keeping you from evaluating your church in the ways and to the extent you should? Yes, its an investment of time, money, energy and emotions. But God’s people – and your ministry – deserve nothing less than your best efforts.”
