Count the Cost

What is Count the Cost?

  • CTC is a tool and a process that we use to help pastors and church leaders see their current reality and the future as they wish it could be. It will also help them see and prepare for problems or difficulties to avoid in the journey ahead.
  • CTC is a spreadsheet utilizing 9 pieces of information that you provide.  The data is put into the sheet and it calculates many needed actions in order to see your desired future come to reality.
  • CTC is a process of understanding that balance and focus on the right things will bring the desired results in reaching people, developing disciples, and training leaders.

Where can I learn more about it?

  • Dr. Bill Agee’s book “The Predictability Factor” does a good job explaining the foundational principles of Count the Cost. Click Here to find out more.
  • We have a ministry page on the CSBC website that helps explain the process.
  • See more Count the Cost information at 

Is it a difficult process?

  • No, not at all. If you can provide 8 pieces of church information, we can run the CTC for you and then debrief with you about its meaning for your church.
  • We can send the CTC Info form to your email if you wish?
