Evaluating Your Retreat

Yesterday we talked about having the women at your retreat complete a retreat survey.

But there’s a second piece to evaluating your retreat – your team evaluation.

Years ago we came up with a Post Event Evaluation Form.

It’s something I recommend teams use after every women’s ministry event.

I’ve taken that form, made some changes, and have a brand-new Post-Retreat Evaluation Form for your team to complete once you’ve returned from the retreat.

How is this different than the retreat survey?

Your team is looking at:

  1. Budget
  2. Volunteers
  3. Publicity
  4. Purpose of the retreat
  5. Effectiveness of the speaker(s)
  6. What would you do differently?
  7. What would you do the same?
  8. Overall impression of the retreat by your attendees
  9. How the lives of your women were changed

You can download the Post-Retreat Evaluation Form by clicking on the link below. It is a free PDF.

I strongly encourage you to have a post-retreat meeting with your team 2-3 weeks after your retreat (any longer and the details will start to fade).

The lessons you've learned will help in the planning of future retreats

In addition to completely this Post-Retreat Evaluation Form together you can also:

  • Review the surveys the women completed
  • Celebrate
  • Thank your volunteers

Consider providing lunch or dinner and/or purchasing a small thank you gift for every team member.

Please keep a file of your Post-Retreat Evaluation Forms to pass along to the next Retreat Planning Team.
