It is with much prayer and thoughtfulness that this resource is offered to you as a tool for the growth of your ministry and the Kingdom of God. While the heart of every God-called minister beats with His purpose, at times we may wander from our mission, have our vision for ministry blurred, or see fatigue dampen the fire of our passion. Periodically, we need to clarify our mission, clear our vision, and rekindle our passion. In ministry, we need a map to keep us on track. The Ministry Assessment Process (MAP) was designed to assist every United Pentecostal Church International minister to reach his or her potential.
This is not a book, not a quick answer, not a new “gadget” for ministry. The hope is that this will be a MAP that you can use over and over to keep your ministry on track, promoting growth and effectiveness.
Use this Ministry Assessment Process frequently as a tool to help you reach the destination the Lord had in mind for you when He called you into the ministry. Please be prepared to invest an adequate amount of time in this process. If you will MAP your ministry, the Lord will honor the process with spiritual results.
“Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:12)
At the end of this Ministry Assessment Process, you will be asked to commit to the following:
Personal spiritual growth through habitual prayer, fasting, and Bible study
Personal evangelism by being a soul winner
Ministerial growth by developing your unique ministry to its fullest potential by being coached and by coaching other ministers
Growing the church by promoting evangelism, discipleship, team ministry and leadership development
Helping to start at least one daughter work in the next year
Continuing in the Apostles’ doctrine
