This post complements an earlier one on how to diagnose whether your ministry is too big or small.
This diagram ranks popular tech companies by revenue per employee:
I've been following this closely because I have seen more young leaders concerned about their efficiency rather than their hours. In ministry I have seen a focus on "more"--more money, more students, more time spent, more strategies, more planning.
But isn't "more" worthless if your team or ministry is inefficient?
One more thought related to "more": the thing that are most valuable in ministry require a tremendous amount of faith, and engender a significant amount of internal and external resistance.
If we are really being efficient ministers than shouldn't we be "working" a lot less, but on extremely significant things?
I'd appreciate hearing your experience with determining you or your ministry's efficiency!
You can read the context of this diagram and lots of good comments here.
