a truly abbreviated annual report from Mars Hill omits any mention of campus by campus giving breakdowns.

Not much by itself to observe here.  The lack of a campus by campus breakdown of donors and donation averages is possibly due to the corporation being dissolved and some people assuming those numbers aren't interesting (or maybe they're too interesting).

But some things Bill Clem said in the Leadership Journal article might be worth unpacking with some numbers compiled from FY reports.

 For instance in FY2012 the stats listed for Ballard and Bellevue were
                   avg weekly att          % MH att.     Ttl Gn Fund giving   # givers
Ballard       2824                          23%              $5,396,139.00           2892
Bellevue    1628                          13%               $3,446,671.00          1737

Compare that to FY2013
                   avg weekly att          % MH att.     Ttl Gn Fund giving   # givers
Ballard       1742                          14%              $3,424,129.00           1676
Bellevue     2284                          19%              $4,520,496.00           1762

Between FY2012 and FY2013 Mars Hill Ballard lost about 1,200 givers while Bellevue may have only seen a net increase of 25 donors but an increase in giving (that mere six figure seems like it must be inaccurate, though).  In terms of total general fund giving for the Ballard campus the span between FY2012 and FY2013 looks like it saw a drop of nearly 2 million!  The loss of about 1,200 donors might not have been entirely to the shift of live preaching from Ballard to Bellevue but the numbers do seem to back up the gist of what Clem explained as the dynamic of Mars Hill Central dictating what decisions could or couldn't be made based on fixed metrics. 

If you'd like to peruse a compilation of the campus by campus vital stats compiled from earlier fiscal year reports... then minimize all the calendar-based stuff on the right hand and read on after the break

Note the weekly loss per campus was presented in a June 2012 sermon by Driscoll in a "Financial Update".  It may be useful as a benchmark for then-systemic deficits that were being run until a re-org.
