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.”
- 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.
