Performance Management: Faithfulness and Fruitfulness

Understanding the relationship between faithfulness and fruitfulness is of no small significance to those who give their lives to gospel ministry.

If God requires both faithfulness and fruitfulness, then how can we help our overseas mission partners to faithfully pursue fruitfulness? And what does this actually look like when it comes to performance management?

How can we as HR practitioners develop a framework to help manage performance appropriately and consistently? How do we think of ‘performance’ and 'fruitfulness' in our agencies? What other factors have a bearing on performance in an overseas context? In managing performance, how do we balance reviewing our people’s well-being and their work?

This day event will seek to cover, amongst other things:

  • A Biblical overview of faithfulness and fruitfulness, stewardship and accountability
  • An introduction to secular theory around performance management, and how Biblical ideas relate to this
  • What is fruitfulness in a mission context – what are we really looking for, and how do we measure?
  • The practical application of performance management in terms of policies, processes and approaches, making use of examples from three different mission agencies

Our speakers include Rob Hay (Diocese of Leicester), Sarah Hay (European Christian Mission International), Philip Bingham (Church Mission Society) and Beverlea Parkhill (OMF International).
