Ministry Evaluation Tools?


Does anyone know of any short but effective ministry evaluation tools? We have used a longer and some would say cumbersome ministry evaluation tool for the last few years, and we are looking for a shorter and more accessible tool to use. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

By 'ministry evaluation tool' do you mean for evaluating specific ministry programs of your church, or the overall collective ministry impact?

Thanks for the reply.  I'm thinking of an evaluation tool for specific ministries of the church.  It would be also helpful if the tool could help the team vision for the future, but maybe that's asking too much? :)

Thank you kindly and God bless,

Hi Leon,

We have a great resource for that. "Evaluation Essentials for Congregational Leaders" You can find a PDF of it here or, if you'd like hard copies (for only the cost of shipping), you can get them from Faith Alive 800-333-8300 or [email protected]  

Hope that helps!

Thank you for the recommendation.  I checked my resources and I have this tool!  So, now I will explore it.

May the Lord continue to empower you for a life of ministry,

Hi Leon -- toward the bottom of this page:

there is a downloadable Ministry Evaluation form that a CRC congregation has shared with us.  You can also use this document as a template and modify to suit your congregation's needs/circumstances,

Thank you for the recommendation.  I just saved and copied this tool and will explore it further.  It looks helpful.

Grace & peace,



Ken, looks like the link to the Ministry Evaluation form is no longer working. Do you know where the document is currently housed? Thank you!  

great resources, thanks!
