What kind of impact are your ministries having on those who are a part of them?
How much do your students really takeaway from your sermons, small group discussions, experiments and active participation in ministry?
Consider the 'Cone of Learning' (pictured to the right) or 'Cone of Experience' that was put forth by Edgar Dale in 1969. While this depiction may not be what Dale had originally conceived (click here and here to read about this debate), I think this is worth us spending some serious time considering and using to assess whether or not, or to what extent, what we are doing is truly assisting our students to grow spiritually.
I'll probably spend a few days camping out on this...
So stay tuned and speak your opinion!
