Movement Indicators Definitions (current as of 2013)



 

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]

 

Group   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.)  

 

Media   Exposures

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:

 

STUDENTS

 

 

Involved  

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.  

 

Engaged   Disciples

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)

 

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]

 

FACULTY

 

 

Involved  

How many faculty are regularly involved?

 

Engaged   Disciples

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

 

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.].

 


Stages of Movement Development Definitions
CRU has defined six stages of movement to describe a Movement

  1. Inactive – No active Campus Ministry strategy nor potential student leader at this ministry location. No missional team has taken ownership of this location.    
  2. Pioneering – We are actively doing something to start a ministry at this ministry location—prayer, seeking a key contact, evangelism.
  3. Key Leader – We have found a key leader – student, volunteer, or partner – at this ministry location and are beginning to build a movements. 
  4. Launched – We have  five  people aligned to Win/Build/Send as well as a leader.  These people can be students, faculty, volunteers or a staff member. 
  5. Multiplying – A Movement of 50 or more students involved, or 1% of the student body
  6. Transitioned – In Global Missions only--Has passed this movement over to be coached by national staff.
