Bad poll results means everyone gets a free download.
Back in September this blog featured a poll on the topic of Evaluation. We asked, "Have you ever been evaluated in your role as a small-group leader?"
Here's what the results look like after a couple months:
- No (66 percent)
- Yes, by my church (23 percent)
- Yes, I have taken a personal evaluation (8 percent)
- Other (3 percent)
To me, those are pretty scary numbers. Less than a quarter of the group leaders taking the poll have been evaluated by their churches? Two-thirds of group leaders haven't been evaluated at all?
That means one of three things: 1) Churches aren't thinking about evaluation in general, 2) Churches aren't placing a lot of emphasis on evaluating lay leaders, or 3) Churches want to evaluate lay leaders but don't have the time/staff/tools.
I hope it's the latter, because that can be corrected. In fact, we can help.
SmallGroups.com has a resource called Evaluations for Small-Group Leaders. I am making this free to readers of this blog until the end of the year. Just use the coupon code SGEVALUATION when you go through the checkout process.
