The number of people does not necessarily and dictate the amount of impact.
Sometimes the impact made in one persons life is what actually fuels your soul, the rest of the church, the rest of the organization.
A heroin addict that puts down the drugs. Someone suicidal decides life is worth living. A mom or a business person that realizes that God does have a destiny and purpose for them and they go from wanting to die to wanting to live.
Watching a broken family become whole again. Watching a broken person become whole again.
It’s easy to count dollars, or people, or whatever else your business school has taught you to count.
But that doesn’t always equal impact.
If your impact number is high, don’t worry – everything else will usually fall into place.
If your impact number is low, what are you counting – and why? Is it measuring your ‘true’ impact?
Oh yeah, impact doesn’t always show up in a balance sheet or a tally total. Impact isn’t something you can usually measure until later.
So don’t let the numbers throw you. Just keep moving forward.
