Answers for Pastors

What Weight Should Pastors Give to Numerical Growth?

  1. Pastors should consider dozens of different factors in evaluating their ministry.
  2. Numerical growth should be one of the items on that list.
  3. However, it should probably fall pretty low on that list, under things such as:
  4. Faithful preaching
  5. Faithful praying
  6. Faithful living
  7. Faithful evangelizing
  8. A congregation’s spiritual health
