Interview a Missionary

Although it is a delight for a church to hear a missionary presentation, sometimes the pastor may want to interview the missionary in front of the church. Interviewing a missionary will allow the church to hear the specific questions that can most benefit them. This list is in no way perfect, just a few that will spark other ideas.

  • Tell us how you got saved.
  • Tell us why you believe God wanted you to be a missionary.
  • Why did you choose that specific country?
  • How could we as a church have a part in your ministry?
  • What was the strangest experience you have had so far?
  • What was the hardest challenge you have faced?
  • What is the funniest thing that has happened?
  • What is your favorite memory from your time in the country so far?
  • How can we be praying for you?
  • What is the strangest food they eat in your country? 
  • Why should someone from our church consider going to your country? 
  • What are your goals? We’d like to know and be able to pray for you. 
  • How do you know God called you or lead you to missions? 
  • What has been one of the most challenging things that you have faced on the mission field or up to now? How did you get the victory? 
  • What do you do on the mission field as a wife/mother? 
  • How can churches and people partner with you in a more tangible way?
  • How do you balance family and ministry? 
  • Can you tell a story of someone who was saved in your ministry? 
  • How do you spend time with the Lord? 
  • Tell something interesting about your culture.
