In case you haven’t seen it or heard of it yet, LifeChurch.tv has recently released www.churchmetrics.com. It’s a great tool to track all sorts of things including attendance, baptisms, salvations, giving, and more. They have great charts so that you can track and view trends in those various areas. And best of all, it’s free!
We’ve been using it at one of my churches www.carrollwoodchurch.com and it’s been a great addition. One way that it’s already made a great impact is through an event that we host every year. Every year we invite someone (who will remain nameless) to come into the church and do a concert. We advertised it two weeks in a row and guess what happened? It was our lowest attended service for awhile. To me this seems pretty significant. If our lowest attendance happens to be when this guy comes around to do a concert, guess what we have to ax? That’s right. These concerts.
Big thanks to LifeChurch.tv for their generosity in contributing to the Christian world these wonderful apps!
