Numbers tell stories

Whatever you measure tells a story. It tells others what you value. So, decide what story you are telling and collect that data.

Here's the tricky bit about this: if you don't decide what's important, what story needs to be told, what is valued and therefore measured others will do this for you. They will decide what needs to be measured and what story this tells.

Again, decide what story you are telling and collect that data.

Speaking of metrics, Church Metrics is a fantastic app for new communities. You should try it out so that you can adapt it's preset features to measure what matters to your community.
