A MINISTRY UNIT UNIT ASSESSMENT FORM is available for every element in the church. A Ministry Unit is any single entity whose function is geared to one specific sphere of action and/or activity, and encompasses all those involved in the fulfillment of one common goal. This unit often functions under the direction and leadership of one centralized superintendent or director, often displaying a variety of departmentalized divisions (e. g., age, grade, gender, interest).
This concept may be as broadly defined as a large unit like the “Sunday School” or as narrowly viewed as one single individual ministering in a one-on-one encounter such as “counseling”. It includes the entire gamut of agencies, organized groups, clubs, individual classes, etc., and may be applied to such concepts as auxiliary enterprises and ancillary functions
A FACILITIES CHART, outlining standards and norms for various elements of the church facility, is included. This section should be kept handy for quick reference.
GRAPHS & CHARTS
Forms are available for recording current members and attendees as well as the “potential” of the community. Proper compilation and charting of such factors as age, gender, occupation, income ranges and residency provfide vital statistical materials which can be useful in more accurate and efficient future planning.
Miscellaneous forms, charts, graphs and other helps abound. Additional elements, including registries, inventory lists, history of the church, classroom observation form, board and committee composition forms, curriculum usage charts, and numerous others, help round out this study.
