Think God is calling you to church planting? We encourage you to walk through this assessment process. The assessments will help us gauge whether your gifts are a good fit for the work of a church planter.

Initial screening assessment (ISA)

The ISA measures church planter readiness in four areas: church planting experience, entrepreneurial leadership, ministry experience, and relational evangelism. Create a Church Planter Profiles account to take the free online assessment.
