Form C: Evaluation of Attendees

This should be done by discussion leader assistants (where possible, women with women, men with men).   The leaders can help.

 

The big issue is:   Where is the person spiritually?   Discussion class work alone can not be expected to determine this.   It will take time outside the class.   Personal visits, including lunch or breakfast, are best.   Phone calls can help if done frequently but not annoyingly (wrong time or setting; let them say when).   Social times together are very helpful.   Invite them for dinner.   Do a project together.   Help practically where you can.   Be a friend, not a “checker-upper.”

 

Answer these questions.   Keep confidences.   Give a copy to the key leader for suggested actions.

 

1.          Is there evidence of true salvation?   If so, have they submitted to “believer’s baptism”?

 

2.          Is Christ really their Lord in daily practice?


3.          Are there good relationships with others?

 

4.          Are there hindrances?

 

Examples:   Defective consecration, known areas of disobedience to God’s will, impurity of thought or deed, defiling habit as besetting sin, unforgiving spirit, unresolved grievances (circle applicable and explain briefly but don’t break confidences or tell others of your opinion).

 

5.          Where is their real, ongoing progress?

 

6.          What is the status of their devotional life?

 

7.                   Are they sharing their faith as a way of life?

 

8.                   Are they doing Scriptural memory work?

 

9.                   Have you expressed approval in areas of progress?  

 

10.                   What are your goals for them?   What are their goals, if they have any.

 

Summarize.
