This is the second of two items. Part 1 (at HC6) explains the Christian Effectiveness Model as a means of assessing the effectiveness of any kind of Christian mission agency or church enterprise.

It 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.

This second part gives a complete listing of all the 48 questions and 240 sample tests. These are structured as follows.

The Validity theme
Foundations – Mission – Calling

The Choice theme
Leadership – Strategy – Change

The Excellence theme
Staffing – Support – Service

The Achievement theme
Impact – Perceptions – Faithfulness

Author's notes

The Model has undergone a major revision at October 2015 to recast all the questions into 'open' format, to make the explanation more user-friendly and to add other material. If you use the Model I would be glad to hear about this, and I welcome ideas for improvements.

The Model has been updated in December 2022 with minor changes to the text.
