Life.Church Senior Pastor Craig Groeschel acknowledged that it is hard to measure success when it comes to church ministries.
“It’s difficult to measure success in leading people spiritually. How do you accurately gauge if people are growing closer to God?” said Groeschel in an interview with The Oklahoman.
Life.Church is a multisite church with locations in nine states that draw tens of thousands of worshipers a week, and is known for its technological outreach via livestreaming their services and the widely downloaded Bible App.
Groeschel explained that he believed it was difficult to measure how well a church is doing, because it goes beyond just membership numbers.
