Hey Fletch … I am wondering if you have any suggestions on books that show the importance of “Knowing Your Numbers.” I have found that keeping my finger on the pulse of our church it is a must. Not just financials but overall. Thanks for any input you can give.

DRF—I can’t think of any books off the top of my head, but I looked on Amazon and found some. This one is coming out in March and sounds interesting: The Gospel-Driven Church: Uniting Church Growth Dreams with the Metrics of Grace and another has been around 11 years: Effectiveness By The Numbers: Counting What Counts in the Church

In our online course on Generosity, we do have an entire class on metrics. I did a Hey Fletch on leading indicators and have several other Hey Fletch columns on metrics.
