What we've learned:

"Data has a seat at the table"—it's something we say a lot here at Life.Church. The distinction is that even though we place a high value on collecting and analyzing data (that's why we created Church Metrics, after all), it still only has one seat at our decision-making table. We've learned that the Bible, God's voice, precedent, intelligence, and research also have seats at the table. Above all, the prompting of the Holy Spirit through Bible study and prayer helps shape our decisions. We have a lot of great tools and information available to us, but we must always remember to humble ourselves to the will of God when making decisions.
