Welcome to the Church Planter Candidate Assessment

The Church Planter Candidate Assessment (CPCA) is a statistically validated online assessment instrument which helps potential church planters and their respective organizations identify areas of established strength and other areas needing development as they prepare to plant a church.

What traits should a church planter have? Are there discernible personal qualities evident among those who have planted successfully? LifeWay Research endeavored to unearth the skills and mindsets common among the most proven church planters. What resulted were specific, measurable characteristics which were consistent among those who have had success in planting churches.

Planters, if you have already registered, you can access the assessment here.
