Terry Virgo on Church Growth

"Churches can sometimes become obsessed with numbers so that members feel that they are merely the means to an end and not particularly valued for themselves. Growth can be measured purely in terms of the body count on Sundays while spiritual growth and developing maturity can be marginalized or go unnoticed".
