See you after Thanksgiving!

It’s a simple thing to ask at this point in the semester:

Are your student leaders better at their “jobs” than they were in August?

This is an assessment not ultimately of them, but it’s an assessment of the college ministry. Are student leaders growing in their “skills,” in their ministry aptitude, under your watch?

Sure, they’ve got experience. But are they better because of training, not just experience?

If he’s not a much stronger small group leader, if she’s not leading the Evangelism Team quite a bit better, etc., then it’s worth considering where leader training can fit in next semester. Every “job” has skills (and many of these skills overlap under the general heading of “leadership”). So these things can be taught, not simply improved by experience.
