Missionary Questionnaire

[This is a sample questionaire for missionaries. Feel free to adapt it for your own church's needs.]

Our church desires to spread the gospel to the world. We desire to use our mission offerings to accomplish this in a Scriptural way. We want to support men whose doctrinal position is in line with ours. We want to help establish churches of like faith and practice. To insure that, we are asking each prospective missionary to fill out this questionnaire. If we decide to support you, we would also like a picture of your family for our missionary display. Feel free to use a blank sheet of paper for any expanded answers and please number them.
