A “discipleship ratio” is defined as the difference between those who are part of the church family (on the books as members and people just attending) in comparison with those who are actively involved in fruitful ministry. This ministry may take place inside the church building on Sabbath. But it also must include those who are actively reaching lost people outside the building. They are called to ministry in their neighborhood, at their workplace, in their family, and in the community where they live.
