I hope you have ways – even informal ones – to assess your student leaders (from small group leaders to ministry team leaders to teachers).
Assuming you do, here’s an important eval question: How much time did you spend on your ministry this week?
There isn’t (probably) a definite time requirement here, nor even a clear baseline. But the results of your question might be informative. And they will probably provide the chance to push some leaders to understand the value of preparation, of ongoing improvement, and even of the work of prayer.Meanwhile, some leaders may need to learn about using time more efficiently, or working hard but then trusting God with the results, or balance – even when it comes to this form of ministry.
Meanwhile, some college ministry student leaders may need to learn about using their time more efficiently, or working hard but then trusting God with the results, or balance – even when it comes to this form of ministry.
And once you start asking the question, those student leaders will start thinking about the time they spend. Y’all can wrestle together about what’s best.
