This is the place that we determine if we are to partner together in planting a church and if so where and when. Our church planters plant with a team so this stage may lead to our Residency program called ELEVATE. This may involve a partner church(s) as well as those involved in church planting are involved in alignment to insure the greatest opportunity for success. Church Planting must be conducted in an environment of relationship to enhance rich networks of support, mentoring and resources.
Our goal is to be faithful stewards by investing in you and in discovering the Father’s will in His harvest field.
This stage involves the personal development stage of the process. Understanding who you are, your personality, your strengths and weaknesses, passions and style of leadership are essential in forming a team to plant a new congregation. Areas we will explore and invest in you are:

Set up an appointment for us to conduct a 4-hour behavioral assessment interview with you and your spouse. The
assessment is written and shared with you and is provided to those who will be involved in the selection process. If you have
already participated in a Church Planting Assessment, please send us a copy of the report. In some cases a previous
assessment is used in lieu of our own but many times we need to conduct an assessment based upon our setting. Our
assessment process assists us in determining if we are to partner with you and where. You will receive the results of the
assessment to assist you in affirming areas of growth and needed growth. If God leads us to partner together we use the
assessment to assist in developing an intentional coaching and mentoring covenant.
