The mission of The United Methodist Church is to “Make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” (Matt 28:18-20 & Matt 22:36-40) This mission is achieved through
vital congregations that equip and empower people to be Disciples of Jesus Christ in their
homes and communities around the world.
Beginning with the email you receive March 3, 2017 your church’s Vital Signs dashboard will be simplified to collect three vitally important data points:
Your church should continue to report these three statistics quarterly. Clergy or their designee will continue to receive the email weekly as a reminder to report data. However, the decision to similarly track other metrics, e.g., small group attendance, people served in mission, etc., will be at the discretion of the congregation and pastor. Pastors and churches are free to monitor their other vital signs in whatever way is most helpful to them.
