Pastors, You Are NOT Your Numbers


Pastor, you are not your numbers. Your worth and your value come from who you are in Christ. You are called. You are chosen. You are valued and loved.

Your numbers are what they are. Sometimes they will be up. Sometimes they will be down. Your worth isn’t based on the appearance of success. Easter has come and gone, but is everybody coming back? Probably not. And, that’s okay, because your worth is not determined by how many people are attending.
