The Vital Signs Dashboard is a tool designed to help congregations follow their progress on the goals that they set for each year. This tool allows you to track your weekly worship attendance, professions of faith, small group participation and financial giving. It is a tool based upon the denomination's Vital Congregations work.
Each week one person in your congregation will be sent an e-mail from Discipleship Ministries, with the link to enter your metrics. The data collected is immediately available to your church. You will be asked to report: worship attendance, professions of faith, the number of people involved in small groups, the number of persons involved in mission outreach, the offering amount, the amount given to missions and ministry support, and stories of where you see God’s presence in your church and community. For a detailed description of what to report take a look at this document, especially the frequently asked questions on pages 9-11.
