So today is the last day of school for students in our area. It marks another year of youth ministry that has come and gone. One of the questions I had early on in my student ministry career was “How do I know if I’m doing well or being successful with this ministry as it’s pastor?” That question led me to develop a year end evaluation that either I or another leader in my ministry could walk through that would help measure it’s/my effectiveness and give me benchmarks and goals for the future. Learning to measure my ministry has tremendously helped me manage it and lead it better. “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” Over the years that evaluation has changed and morphed into what I use today not only for my personal ministry assessment, but for those I oversee and their ministries as well. I thought, “Why not pass that along to anyone else who might be able to use it to help them grow and get better at what they do?” So here it is 🙂 Click on the link for the PDF.
