Keeping Score

How To Know If Your Church Is Winning


For most church leaders today, the idea of keeping score is a mystery about what really counts; what we should count; and how to put points on the scoreboard to know for sure their church is winning and advancing the cause of Christ. In Keeping Score: How to Know If Your Church is Winning, the debut title in Exponential’s 2014 “Seek + Save” free eBooks series, pastor and author Dave Ferguson demystifies the “keeping score” concept to help you create a new scorecard grounded in solid theology and ministry practice that can tell your church if God’s kingdom is winning and advancing Jesus’ mission. Among the insights and proven practices:

  • Three metrics and three questions to help you create a scoreboard that fits with your unique context
  • Understanding the difference between the scoreboard and the scorecard
  • Proven help for measuring disciple making, mission and movement making.

Keeping Score,” says Ferguson, “is a book for everyone who loves the church and its mission–for passionate Christ followers, church leaders and church staff who work really hard to put points on the board.”
