Self Assessment Tool

Below are 10 basic questions to help you evaluate your effectiveness in evangelistic ministry. This tool is designed as a simple means to help you identify areas where you are thriving, and areas where you desire growth. One of the biggest benefits of being part of the NGA family is being connected with people and resources who can strengthen you, both in ministry and your personal life. Using this self-assessment as a springboard, we encourage you to take full advantage of your NGA membership as you persevere in evangelistic ministry.

This assessment is completely anonymous. No names are tracked, no data is gathered. This is simply a personal tool for you to "take your pulse" in ministry. Of course, if you want to reach out to NGA regarding anything this survey brings to the surface, feel free! We are here to support you. You can reach us at nga@palau.org.

Blessings!
