Church-Planter Assessment Set For Jan. 18-20

Are you considering planting a church, or do you know someone who may feel called to church-planting?

Grace Brethren North American Missions will host its sixth church Planter Candidate Assessment Center in Pennsylvania the dates of January 18-20, 2007.

The center is a tremendous resource tool in helping potential church planters to evaluate their calling, ministry behavior, personality profile, leadership style, communication skills, and strengths and weaknesses in regard to church planting.

The overall goal is to assist each candidate to honestly evaluate gifts and abilities regarding suitability for church planting. Candidates build relationships with assessors (pastors from the region) and begin to build a network of their greatest church-planting resource, other church planters.

Those who have participated in the assessment center have benefited greatly from the process and highly recommend it to others. Many say the experience has been so positive they would not consider starting a church without the assessment.

The Northeast has a trained quality assessment team. Several resources are used during the process. A comprehensive composite rating is compiled for each candidate with helpful recommendations for practical application.

Please contact GBNAM career missionary Jim Snavely at if you are interested or want to recommend someone for this assessment.
