ASSESSING MISSIONARIES
SENDING CHURCH ELEMENT #8

 A sending church assesses potential missionaries by taking the lead (often with the assistance of a missions organization) to evaluate candidates’ strengths and weaknesses and to chart a path forward toward growth. In the security of covenant membership and authentic relationship, the church partners with candidates to holistically assess their knowledge, character, and skills. Candidates are then called to intentionally enter the next phase of the sending pipeline.
