CHURCH LEADERSHIP AND MINISTRY EVALUATION PAPER INSTRUCTIONS


For this assignment, you will be interviewing someone in leadership at a local church using the
questions provided below. After the interview, you will write a 47-page paper using the
interview questions for the body of your paper. This paper must not exceed 7 pages.
This assignment is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 5.
In order to complete this assignment successfully, follow these steps:
First, read the following chapters from Earley & Gutierrez Ministry Is
Chapter 21: Turning Your Hurts Into Helps
Chapter 22: Partnering With the Holy Spirit
Chapter 24: Confronting Sin
Chapter 25: Balancing the Busyness
Chapter 26: Being Content Instead of Being Competitive
Also read the following chapters from Gutierrez Think Like Jesus: Understanding the
Mind of Christ.
Appendix, Preface, Introduction, and Chapters 15
Second, identify a church leader that you would like to evaluate. If you are a senior
pastor/elder or officially on a pastoral/elder staff of a church, you are required to respond
to the questions yourself as the one being interviewed. If you do not hold the position of
senior pastor/elder and if you are not officially on a pastoral/elder staff of a church, you
must interview a senior pastor/elder, an official pastoral/elder staff member of a church,
or any person who is recognized by the church as a ministry leader, director, teacher, etc.
of a particular ministry. NOTE: The person does not have to be serving in a paid position;
you may interview volunteer leaders. ALSO: It is recommended, but not required, to
interview someone who is currently working in an area of ministry in the local church
that you are interested in working in someday that would seemingly be appropriate with
your particular spiritual giftedness (think about what you learned about yourself in
Discussion Board Forum 1).
Third, summarize the respondents answers to the following questions in 2 or 3
sentences. Do not manuscript the responses; do not use exact words of the respondent
and write from the perspective of the interviewer. The interview questions are based on
Earley and Gutierrezs Ministry Is, Chapters. 21, 22, 24, 25, and 26 as well as
Gutierrezs Think Like Jesus. NOTE: If you are interviewing someone other than
yourself, you may have to provide the individual with an understanding of Earley and
Gutierrez explanation/comments (or their take) on each of these particular subjects as
presented in their book.
When interviewing, first summarize the teachings of the text related to each question.
INTERVIEW TIP: If a response is yes or no ask, Can you tell me what that looks
like? or Can you tell me more?

hearing a sermon, reading a bible verse, hearing a testimony of a
