We wouldn’t use the term “leader” or “leadership” to describe a position, but rather to capture the reality of someone’s influence on people, culture, or an organization. So, our desire is to develop a culture in which every person takes appropriate levels of responsibility for others and faithfully exercises their gifts for the cause of the gospel. This is basic to God’s calling for every person. Beyond that, however, our vision for church will require people to lead in specific roles of kingdom work, church office, and church planting. God has called us to a mission, and a primary means that He has ordained for the task is men and women who lead.
Our grid for assessing and training leaders consists of three parts: character, competency, and compatibility. The following assessments are designed to give someone a starting point for thinking about their strengths and weaknesses in these areas.
