Church Planter Assessment

Are you wrestling with a nagging sense that you’re supposed to be planting a church? Have you decided to plant, but sometimes still question your calling?

Passion for Planting’s church planter assessment process will help you clarify your calling to church planting. Come interact with a team of assessors who will prayerfully discern with you what the Spirit is calling you into.

Our assessment event can be a stake in the ground, a line in the sand for you. In the coming months and years, you will be able to look back with confidence. When the hard days come and you’re tempted to question your calling, you can rest in what you heard from the assessment team.

Here are your 3 simple steps:

  1. Register for the next Assessment event
  2. Come ready to interact with a team of assessors who will prayerfully discern with you what the Spirit is calling you into
  3. As you plant, look back with confidence, and rest in what you heard from the assessment team

The Process

Passion for Planting’s Assessment Center combines a pre-screening process along with a formal 2½ day on-site assessment to evaluate your calling, health, gifts, passions, strengths and weaknesses. Following assessment, you will not only have confidence in your calling, but you’ll also have clear next steps for pursuing the vision God has given you.

The assessment process includes:

• Personality profile inventories
• Ministry questionnaire

Assessment (2.5 days)
• Discovery Sessions (interviews) with the Assessment Team, including a clinical psychologist
• Exercises with other candidate couples
• Summary interview (debrief) with the Assessment Team

• You and your sponsor receive a formal Assessment Report

The People

Our Assessment Team includes experienced church planters, seasoned pastors, a clinical psychologist, and a sponsor from your sending church or network. We help you and your spouse look through multiple lenses to give you a comprehensive view of your readiness to plant a church.
