Throughout this Marks of a Movement, Winfield Bevins has presented 6 marks of a movement from the Wesleyan revival of the 18th and 19th centuries. These marks are not theoretical ideals from days gone by—they are applicable for ministry today.
The following assessment tool was designed to help movement-minded leaders discover what ministry components are aligned with movement-thinking and what may need more attention. For better accuracy and team dialogue, consider involving other ministry leaders, board members, or key influencers by having each complete this assessment and compare the results.
Throughout the assessment, you will find a summary of each mark, followed by five evaluative questions. On a scale from 1-5 (five being the strongest value), circle the number representing your current context. Calculate the total for each mark at the bottom of the page. After you complete all 6 categories, calculate the overall total (out of 150 points) on the final page.
At the end of the assessment, a series of reflective coaching questions are available to help clarify your next steps, both individually and organizationally.
