What is your church worth?

Interesting study graphic here says “in a 1997 study, (it was) found that urban congregations provide, on average, $140,000 worth of services annually.  In 2009, (it) was revised to more than $476,000 annually.”

Some specifics:

  • Reduced crime rate:  $64k
  • Volunteer hours: $94.7
  • Rehab efforts (drugs, alcohol):  $78.7
  • Stimulus to local economy (church budget):  $520k

Impact for eternity:  priceless.
