Active Records

Active Records

These are determined dynamically from your database and are a measure of your ministry. Active Records are the number of people who in the last 12 months have either:

  • Two or more attendance records, OR
  • One or more contribution records

TouchPoint does not charge for one-time guests, so we only consider an individual active if they have two or more attendance records or one or more contribution records.

Active Records vs Average Weekly Attendance
Active Records are intended to measure the scope of your ministry. Since ministry reaches out beyond your average weekly attendance, your average weekly attendance would be smaller than the number of individuals who attend or give during a year. We can easily compute this figure if you track attendance and contributions.
