The Shepherd's Staff:
Church Membership/Ministry Tracking Instrument
The study and discernment process initiated by the Resources Commission of the Conference of Mennonites in Canada (now Mennonite Church Canada) around issues of church membership has revealed that there is need for instruments designed to help congregations track their membership and design their ministry. This need arises due to many factors some of which are: mobility, inter-denominational loyalty, tradition, relevance of services offered, reluctance to formalize commitments.
It should be understood that a concern for understanding and tracking Church membership/ministry is not legalism, bureaucracy, administration, or a simple concern about members. It is first and foremost a concern for faithfulness. This tool is an instrument of discernment that can lead to more effective strategic planning in ministry.
This tool is also fully compatible with suggestions and perspectives in the study document called Naming the Sheep.
