Questions for the female missionary candidate

Updated: Jan 27, 2020


What questions should you ask a lady who aspires to be a missionary, whether single or married?


Here's my list, off the cuff, from experience.

This is the beginning of a much longer process of evaluation and pre-field preparation, but it's a good start.


  1. What is your testimony of salvation? We're looking for a good biblical understanding of the Gospel

  2. What were your earliest interests in missions?

  3. Do you feel a personal compulsion to become a missionary; why?; how?; what did God use?

  4. How would you rate your effectiveness and consistency in personal spiritual disciples?, do you know that you may have to be effectively self-reliant for feeding your soul in your personal walk with the Lord in order to survive spiritually on the field?

  5. Do you have a personal burden for a specific field/people group
