What is Discipleship?

Thanks for the honesty. I have heard so much about "dashboards" and "vital signs". The culture of growth measures attendance, membership and payment of apportionments. Successful pastors are those who can "grow the church". But making church members is not the equivalent of making disciples. It seems that, since we can't measure discipleship, we will measure the other things and hope for the best. Having said this, though, I am truly grateful for the many churches where both numbers and discipleship are increasing.
