Welcome to the TPM Facilitator
What is the Facilitator Evaluation Program?
This new training program provides the ministry facilitator the opportunity to have his or her ministry facilitation skills evaluated and critiqued by Dr. Ed Smith - the founder of Theophostic Prayer Ministry and/or by his son Joshua Smith- by way of a video recording.
The process is simple; the
participant will record his or herself facilitating a ministry session, submit
the recording for review, and then receive a video response in the form of a
This DVD will contain tips, pointers, and suggestions from Dr. Ed and Joshua
that are tailored to the participant's submitted recording that will aid them
on their journey to becoming an exceptional ministry facilitator!
The evaluation should raise the facilitator's expertise, fine tune their
training, troubleshoot problem areas, and they will benefit from years of
experience from the founder and his son!
A limited number of evaluations are available and this service is offered on a
first-come-first-served basis. Act now!
Ready to get started? The evaluation process is simple:
- Purchase the
"TPM Facilitator Evaluation Program" product from the online store.
Go to the online store (a link to the store can be found below) and purchase
the product named "TPM Facilitator Evaluation Program." This step
must be completed before your recorded ministry session will be evaluated. This service is available on a "first-come-first-served"
basis and is being offered for a limited time.
Before you place your order, please review this page in its entirety. The information that follows is vitally important to understanding the process.

need to be of yourself; NOT of the ministry recipient! Here are some helpful
tips for when you are ready to record yourself:
·Be sure to angle the camera towards yourself and
position it close enough to clearly record your voice and the voice of the
·Before the actual session begins, test your
camera settings by recording a few minutes, talking at different volume levels
(some people talk very softly), and playing it back. Your recording can not be evaluated if we cannot hear you or the
·Try to keep the recorded session within an hour
in length. However, do not attempt to edit or "clean it up” before
·Avoid selecting an "easy" session. The
more "difficult” your case is, the more beneficial your evaluation will likely be for you.
·You can use a wide array of
recording media. We can accept recording on Mini-DV, Super-8, VHS, SD Card,
Flash drive, Mini-SD, DVD, and Mini-DVD. (If your type of media is not listed
here, please contact us before attempting to record a ministry session)
- Print out and
complete the "TPM Facilitator Profile" Form (found below).
Complete all items on the form to the best of your knowledge. This information will aid us in tailoring the evaluation to your specific case.
NOTE: be sure to inform the recipient of the ministry session of the intended purpose of the session and obtain written permission to record the session. You may assure the recipient that no one other than Dr. Ed Smith and Joshua Smith will view the recording.
- Submit your
recorded session and TPM Facilitator Profile Form.
your completed TPM Facilitator Profile with your recorded ministry session to the TPM offices.
Upon receiving these items, we will then confirm that you have purchased the "TPM Facilitator
Evaluation Program" product (mentioned above) and begin to evaluate your
recorded session. We
will spend several hours going through your session.
What will your critique look like?
Once your session has been
completely reviewed and evaluated, we will compile a DVD to send back to you. This
DVD will contain the originally recorded session along with our commentary. We
will evaluate your session line-by-line, looking for any trouble spots, making
suggestions, comments, and instruction via video recording. You will then have a handy reference to review over and over making necessary adjustments to your future ministry sessions.
