Ministry Effectiveness Evaluation

Purpose:

A “Ministry Effectiveness Evaluation” focuses on a church’s recent results and quantifiable record.  It is provided for churches who want to look at the results of their ministries and learn what they need to change or strengthen.

Scope:

The Ministry Effectiveness Evaluation is specifically focused and may be accomplished with a single visit to the church and with data gathering from a distance.  The Ministry Effectiveness Evaluation is always included within the “Excelling Church Consultation” which also provides recommendations, methods, and solutions as well as analysis.

Typical Uses:

The Ministry Effectiveness Evaluation is typically requested in order to answer some of the following questions:

  • Is our church growing?
  • Which ministries are growing, plateaued, or declining?
  • Which ministries/programs are contributing to achieving the church’s vision or plan?
  • Which Ministries/programs are bringing the most or least satisfaction to the attenders?
  • How healthy and effective is our outreach and witness?
  • Is our church viable or able to continue on in ministry?

Cost:

A church is expected to cover the cost of mileage/travel, meals, hotel, printing, and phone/email as needed and provide an honorarium appropriate for 30 hours of consulting work and travel time.  A “flat fee” donation can also be suggested that would cover all of the expenses listed above.
