Last week we blogged about the “why” of statistical reporting. Let’s now look at the “what” question. What are the essential statistics to ask for? One common error is to overload the reports with details that will never be examined. Here are some important, bottom line statistics:
- Whether or not the group actually met
- How many were in the group
- Facts about the group such as conversions and new visitors
- Prayer requests
Some other importnat details include:
- What the leader did during the week to visit attendees
- How many from the group are in the training
- Goal for multiplication
A normal report might look like this:
Please return to Life Group mail slot in church workroom by Sunday.
Leader: ___________________________ Attendance: _______ Date: ___________
Conversions: ________________ Topic/Theme of gathering: ____________________________
Multiplication date: ___________ Multiplication Leaders: ___________________
Contacts of members/visitors: _______ Visitors: __________
How many in Training Track: ________ Meeting with Coach: __________
Utilize the back for prayer requests or information you deem important to communicate with your Coach/Pastoral Staff.
Another good example from the International Christian Center in Staten Island, New York is:
Leader: __________________________________________ Coach: ___________________________________________
Weekly Activity Report:
Total Attendance: ________ Visitors: ________ Conversions: ___________
Bridge Group Trainees :
_________________________ _________________________ _________________________ _________________________
Number of Follow-Up contacts during the week:
Phone: _______________________________ One-on-one Appointments: ___________________________
Utilize bottom of sheet for prayer requests or information you deem important to communicate with your Coach/Leadership Staff. If you need more room please use back of page. Thank You.
