Contending for the faith
Please Keep A Copy of This Form for Your Records
Contenders Discipleship Initiative uses a narrative evaluation approach rather than issuing grades during a student's course of study. A narrative evaluation is written feedback after the course that states what you have learned during a period of study. The Contenders Discipleship Initiative narrative assessment consists of two written evaluations: one from the pastor/mentor for each student attending a course and one that you submit after each course.
The pastor should address your understanding of the course material, completion of tasks or assignments, attendance and participation in discussion.
Your evaluation summarizes your accomplishments while taking the course, any new understandings achieved, and your goals for the future. We ask that the pastor keep a copy of the Student Evaluation together with the Pastor Evaluation for each course in a student file. You should keep the e-mailed copy of the evaluations generated by entering information on this form. If you subsequently apply to Village Missions as a missionary, you will be required to submit copies of these evaluations for each of the courses taken.
