So as a new year approaches, so does assessment and goals.

So how would you evaluate your ministries?

I don't do resolutions that well.

    My annual evaluation process includes a couple things.

    1. My volunteer staff and I go back and review the ministry's philosophy, core values, goals and strategy. Together we hold a discussion about the past year based on these reminders.

    2. The students are given an opportunity to complete a short survey that values their input.

    3. We set annual goals and review them at the end of the year and also set new goals for the upcoming year.

    Granted, this looks like kinda rigid and impersonal, but a lot of the evaluation isn't over concrete issues. Some items are clear, such as the number of conversions and student participation, but most of it evaluates areas like relationships, life-change and teaching emphasis.

    Staff evaluations are always good. They give you a chance to "value" people and see the value in what they do and maybe streamline their role. If your courageous enough, then let them evaluate you. This should give helpful feedback, but even more importantly gives staff a chance to tell you how they really feel. There is some Japanese custom about this where staff can buy the boss a drink and tell them what they really think about him. It can be very helpful. Also very helpful, is program and event evaulation. Though I usually do this right after an event, it is sometimes helpful to do it at the end of the year to determine how to spend resources.

    Evaluation is something I (we) try to do with every event/meeting/activity. But a yearly eval would be a great thing.

    I had our students do a yearly eval of their own lives this past year. It would be something good to consider for our own group.
