It is essential that missionaries will be well prepared before they go to the field. The assessment of missionaries forms an important part of the preparation phase. The aim of the assessment procedure is to get a complete picture of the missionary as a person. Information about his personality, work style, contribution in a team and his spiritual gifts is gathered by means of different measuring instruments. This, in combination with personal interviews that are focused on spiritual maturity and the person's calling, gives a good indication of where and in what position this person can be used by the Lord optimally.
Input on different available training possibilities that can contribute to the missionary's effective preparation, is also given.
Member Care Southern Africa offers a service to churches and organisations in the assessment of missionaries.
