Attendance Champions

I saw a billboard recently that announced a local minor-league baseball team as the “attendance champions”. I think I laughed out loud.

What that billboard said to me, as a leader, was this: We didn’t exactly complete our main goal (to win the baseball championship), but we want to celebrate something and make our fans feel good, so we are celebrating…..ummmm…..attendance!

If this team had won the real championship (regular season or playoffs….), do you think they would have put up this billboard?

The point is this: set goals. If you meet them, celebrate. If you don’t, do not move your target and say you hit it. Reload, and shoot again next time. Then, you will make progress.

How do you measure progress in your church?
