How effective is your training?

A checklist to evaluate the effectiveness of how you train workers:

  1. Is it obedience oriented, and does it have accountability?
  2. Does it give responsibility to those being trained?
  3. Does it lead to multiplication?
  4. Is it simple? Have you asked, What can we leave out? Or do you ask, What can we squeeze in?
  5. Is it actually reproducing disciples? Or just theoretically "reproducible"?
  6. Is it based on self-discovery? Or does the trainer just dump content?
  7. Does everything lead to forming churches?

Perhaps an eighth — does your training content and practice depend on the life-giving power of the Word and the Spirit?

I'm not sure who came up with it. William the Wise passed it on to me.
