Three Results of Discipleship

I am reading a short book by Will Mancini entitled Innovating Discipleship: Four Paths to Real Discipleship Results. Chapters 1-3 are available here. In chapter two, Mancini shares about three kinds of results and his definitions

  • Input results:  focused on the number of people and dollars that come into a church….You can’t lead well without knowing them.
  • Output results:  actual  life-change outcomes that God intends for followers of Christ individually and together.
  • Impact results:  capture the broader effect of the church  in the surrounding  city or community.

Keep in mind the words of Mancini as he concludes chapter 3:  “Input results (attendance and giving) by themselves do not validate the accomplishment of the church’s mission.”

QUESTION OF THE DAY:  What discipleship inputs will produce the desired outputs and impact?
