How do pastors measure success? Is it through the number of people who fill the pews on Sunday morning? Is it tied to programs, building projects, salary, or book deals? Is it about how much technology they use or what their worship band sounds like?
Shawn Lovejoy has seen all of these measures of success lead pastors toward pride, self-reliance, loneliness, isolation, exhaustion, and, in the most extreme cases, self-destruction.
In this honest and encouraging book, he calls pastors back to the "main thing"--the call to love people and make disciples--and to measure their success the way God does. Using Scripture, personal examples, and case studies, Lovejoy gently leads pastors back to their first love, and in doing so he leads them toward a more effective and joy-filled ministry.
With contributions from leading pastors, including
- Larry Osborne
- Steven Furtick
- Mark Batterson
- Chris Seay
- Greg Surratt
- and many more

"Shawn Lovejoy hits an important nerve with this challenging and insightful exposé of what real success in ministry looks like. Too often we've listened to the false gods of competition and numbers instead of to the Holy Spirit and Scripture. Shawn offers us needed corrective."--Larry Osborne, author, pastor of North Coast Church, Vista, CA
"Shawn has given us a book filled with practical insight. I wish I could have gathered this much wisdom in one book when I set out to start my first church seventeen years ago. I would have avoided so many painful mistakes."--Chris Seay, author of A Place at the Table and pastor of Ecclesia, Houston, TX
"Pastor Shawn Lovejoy is a great man of God who has translated a lifetime of ministry experience into practical wisdom. The Measure of Our Success will not disappoint any humble leader who desires to achieve their full potential in Christ."--Steven Furtick, lead pastor of Elevation Church, Charlotte, North Carolina; author of Sun Stand Still
