“Is our ministry representative of our mission statement?” I love that food for thought.
I don’t think that “are we creating other vocational ministers?” is the best marker of effectiveness (which I don’t think was the point you were trying to make). If our teens are able to graduate and thrive as Christians in the “real world” and lead others to Christ, I believe that’s a good indicator of an effective ministry.

Hey Katy, thanks for the comment. We wrestled with that “Bible college”
piece because of the same thing you alluded to – that there ARE other
students that love Christ that aren’t going into ministry. However,
that is VERY hard to quantify, isn’t it? What is a “solid” student that
is living for Christ? How do we figure that out? So, we landed on
Bible college as the third leg of our criteria for measuring success.
After all, if a student goes to Bible college and enters the ministry,
some great ripple effects can be made for the Kingdom, right? And we
also recognize that this particular criteria cannot stand alone, which
is why it is only part of the whole. Hope that clarifies a little bit
