Church Planter Assessment Center
An individual wants to plant a church, but does he have the calling, character and capacities to plant a healthy, multiplying church? Central Region Church Planting is ready to partner with you to determine if the planter (a.k.a. client) is qualified, equipped and prepared to plant successfully. The Church Planting Assessment Center provides an objective and systematic analysis of potential planters based on references, ministry experiences, structured interviews, diagnostic instruments and observed behavior during assessment activities, presentations and simulations. At the conclusion of the assessment, the client and his coach/denominational representative are provided with a detailed Assessment Report including an overall recommendation and specific coaching objectives to help the client achieve success.
The assessment team is made up of seasoned church planters, church planting coaches, lay leaders of church start-ups and a Christian psychologist. Each assessor receives the assessment manual and client documentation one week prior to Assessment, and attends a training session prior to the arrival of the clients. Team members are given the assessment schedule, instructed on the purpose and results of the assessment tools and apprised of appropriate interaction with client couples.
