A leader in a summer program has a great responsibility of establishing other Christians in their faith. Because of this, the Navigators have developed criteria that we think a team leader would need to have:
Consistent in the basics of Word, prayer, fellowship, and witnessing; is under the Lordship of
Christ; and has been growing in these areas for a period of time
Has developed a heart for God
Is willing to make sacrifices to grow
Is involved in ministry on their campus
Has attended a Navigator program (exceptions may be made for this)
Demonstrates humility through a teachable/learner’s heart
In light of the criteria listed, we would like you to assess yourself in the following questions:
Can you identify the time in your life in which you personally believed and became a genuine follower of Christ?
Briefly describe how you came to know Christ personally
How long have you been growing in your relationship with Christ?_______________________________
One definition of Lordship is that a person puts Christ first in the major areas of life and is taking steps to separate from sin. In light of this definition, tell us about how Jesus is becoming more central to your life?
1 Thessalonians 4:3 “For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality.”
We recognize that all people are sinners and that God desires us to “flee from the sin that so easily entangles” and pursue Jesus. Please describe any sexual sin that may have an impact on you during this program, as well as the frequency of your involvement. Please also describe what you are currently doing to pursue holiness in these areas. An example would be, “I have used pornography for years, and currently use it weekly. I have a peer group
where I can be open with my struggles and pray with weekly.” Or “Last year I ended an unhealthy relationship with
my ex-boyfriend/girlfriend. We had sex, but since have confided in a close friend/staff member.” These answers
will be kept confidential and gender specific. This will not necessarily disqualify you as a team leader, but rather will help you be shepherded better over the course of the summer.
In what ways have you been building God’s word in your life?
Hearing God’s Word at church
Reading the Bible
Personal Bible Study
Briefly describe each of the above answers:
What is something that you have learned from God’s word recently?
How have you been able to apply what you learned?
Describe the role of prayer in your devotional life:
What is your understanding and experience of Spiritual gifts? How do you practice these in your current ministry context?
What are some ways you have served other Christians lately?
What key components do you desire in a true fellowship with other brothers and sisters in Christ?
Are you involved in a significant dating relationship? __________ If yes, how do you see it affecting your summer?
Church affiliation and involvement:
Who is your current spiritual leader?
Describe 1 area that they have helped you grow in over the last 6 months:
When was the last time they addressed a character issue in your life? How did you respond to it?
I share my faith: weekly
Have you ever led anyone to Christ?
Have you taken a new believer through follow-up?
Are you willing to model and train others in evangelism?
