Spiritual Conversations—Pre Evangelism
Engaging someone a spiritual conversation but did not present the gospel and bring them to a point of decision. Non-believers and new people you have met, like freshmen follow up (because you don't know if they are a Christian or not until you meet them). Note: this doesn't include the spiritual conversations you are having with Christians who are already involved. The heart of this is to capture our faithfulness in engaging people with spiritual conversations.
[Examples— Asking questions about a person's spiritual background, talking through Soularium, Perspective cards, sharing a personal testimony or a short film, I think you get the idea]
Gospel Conversations (Personal Evangelism)
People who have heard the gospel and been brought to a point of decision through a conversation with you or a student or volunteer? [each time you share the gospel with the same person count it]
[Includes staff, student, faculty & volunteer evangelism and personal internet evangelism]
A group of people who heard the gospel and brought to a point of decision through group evangelism? (Examples: evangelistic presentations at sports team meetings, in a classroom, at a Bible study, a weekly meeting; English Club, The Maze, The Jesus Film showing, holiday outreaches, Speaker’s Forum etc. Count every person in the room.)
How many people have been exposed to gospel content with an opportunity to respond through media exposures? (Examples: Facebook Ads—count those who click on the ad, posting an evangelistic article—count each friend, myeverystudent.com/ES.com, FSKs; Bible, book etc.)
Personal Evangelism Decisions for Christ
How many people have indicated a decision to receive Christ as their Savior and Lord after hearing a presentation of the Gospel in a personal conversation?
Group Evangelism Decisions for Christ
How many people have indicated a decision to receive Christ as their Savior and Lord after hearing a large group presentation of the gospel?
Media Exposure Decisions for Christ
How many people have indicated a decision to receive Christ as their Savior and Lord after being exposed to the gospel via media?
Holy Spirit Presentations
How many people have heard a presentation of the ministry of the Holy Spirit and been given the opportunity to respond?
[Examples: individual or group presentations of Spirit filled Life, Life concept; follow-up # 3, Satisfied booklet, etc. Count each person who hears this content.--everyone at a weekly meeting, everyone at a Bible study etc. And each time one person hears the SFL content]
End of Each Semester
The following numbers should be updated at the end of the semester or as changes occur:
How many students are regularly involved—attending movement events? For the Big East we are defining "involved" as students who come half the time to a weekly event like large group, life group, discipleship group, one-on-one meeting, follow-up meetings. Use your judgement on others you would deem someone as involved but can't come regularly. For example, there are some circumstances that might prevent someone from being involved for a semester, but they still identify with Cru and would consider themselves apart of the community....and we are pursuing them at some level.
How many students have intentionally engaged someone in a spiritual conversation within the past semester? [The heart for this label is that they have gone from merely attending movement events and begun to look outside of themselves to pass on their faith] Include all who are also leaders (Note: if Leaders aren't doing this, then they probably shouldn't be leaders)
How many students are leading small groups of Win-Build-Send ministry? (Examples: groups focused on reaching target audiences, launching movements, etc.) This number will be smaller than engaged disciples
Graduating on Mission
How many transitioning students have you walked through the Five Things, and sent out with a personal plan to live missionally as Christ-centered laborers?
[Transitioning=graduating college, high school, community college, grad students and transfers]
How many faculty are regularly involved?
How many faculty have intentionally engaged in a spiritual conversation within the past semester? [The heart is that they have gone from merely attending movement events and begun to look outside of themselves to pass on their faith] Include all who are also leaders
How many faculty are leading Win-Build-Send activities? (Examples: groups focused on reaching target audiences, evangelistic Bible study, discipleship groups etc.) This number will be smaller than engaged disciples.
Faculty on Mission
How many faculty have you walked through the Five Things, and sent with a personal plan to live missionally as Christ-centered laborers? Or how many faculty have you sent to launch movements in someplace new [another country, another school, another department etc.].
