This first of two items (Part 2 is at HC7) explains the Christian Effectiveness Model as a means of assessing the effectiveness of any kind of Christian mission agency.

Part 1 explains the terms used and introduces two case studies. It then addresses the issue of whether it is possible to measure effectiveness as such.

The Model is then outlined. It is based on four themes:

  • Validity
  • Choice
  • Excellence
  • Achievement.

Each theme has 12 questions to ask, and each question has five sample tests. Part 1 shows the structure, then explains the choice of the themes and questions, and explains how the Model is run.

The actual questions and tests are all listed in Part 2 (HC7) but Part 1 is essential reading for an understanding of how the Model works.
