According to the 2009 Impact leader survey, the majority of SEND’s field leaders did not have any regular scheduled meetings with their supervisors. About half did not have a formal review of their leadership on an annual basis. Several identified regular meetings with their supervisor as something that SEND needed to do or change to help them develop as an effective field leader. Furthermore, they said that when field leaders did meet with their supervisors, they were not normally asked about their relationship with God. The Rekindle plan seeks to address this situation.
All field leaders will be expected to meet with their supervisors for a personal and ministry update (called “Rekindle” meetings) once per quarter. This meeting will be scheduled by their supervisor and follow an agenda established by the International Leadership Team.
Regional Directors will meet with Area Directors Area Directors will meet with country leaders and country leaders with their team leaders.In the case of team leaders without country leaders, each Area Director will decide whether he will conduct the quarterly meetings or whether they will be done by a representative of the Area Council.
Prior to the quarterly meeting, the supervisor will ask the field leader to spend some time in personal reflection using the Rekindle prep form (Reflect, Refocus, Resources).
In these scheduled quarterly meetings, the field leader and his supervisor may discuss any ministry or personal issues of concern to either party. But the supervisor will ensure that the following questions are also discussed:
The supervisor will pray for the field leader during the meeting and will ask how he and/or the mission can help the field leader develop in his effectiveness as a leader.
