I define wins by the life change that was experienced, not the amount of people that showed up. If we draw a massive crowd but no life change happens, how can we say we’ve accomplished the mission? It’s easier to look at numbers than life change. As someone who likes systems and formulas, I fall into this trap easily. Looking at the number of people who came to an event, or signed up for a class. But while width matters in ministry, depth matters too. Don’t get me wrong, numbers do matter. But they don’t always mean you are winning.
Evaluate the numbers but focus on the life change.
