Church Metrics

One church measurement I thought of while listening in on Brent's session at Leadership Institute was how much square footage of the church building is used by staff and storage, vs. outreach events, members, small groups, food storage, etc. All of Resurrection's building's compromise about 300,000 sq. ft. and we store a lot of operation materials off-site because we "don't have enough space."

I thought through how much "space" we have, and how little of it is used to run the church. I don't know the ratio, but I know it's heavily offset toward ministry, and against staff and storage. I think this is a good thing. ;)
