Church Planter Survey Tool

Church Planter Survey Tool

The CPS (Church Planter Survey) is a tool developed by Reach Australia to provide clear feedback on your strengths, areas of growth, and how they map to different church planting models.  The self-assessment is broken into two surveys:

  1. Gospel Worker Characteristics
  2. Church Planting Questionnaire

Knowing your strengths assesses you on 7 core competencies, including spiritual vibrancy, theological drive, emotional intelligence, gospel vision, courageous shepherding, evangelistic urgency and effective overseeing.

We also help you understand your ministry style suitability across 11 competencies. These include DNA Carrier, organisationally gifted, mediator, patient strategist, entrepreneur, networker, gatherer, implementer, team player, resilient entrepreneur and change agent.  From there, we’ll help you consider how these leadership competencies might fit with different church planting models.

It’s important to be candid when you complete both self-assessments. Your honest evaluation will help you gain a clear understanding of strengths and development needs in various areas of ministry. Your results will be kept confidential.

Receiving your reports

Once you have completed the self-assessments, you will receive a report from our team letting you know your results. The report give you insights into the three key areas: core biblical characteristics, leadership competencies, church planting models suitability.  Along with the report, you’ll receive a CPAT handbook to help you interpret the results.

Like any online test, it’s always helpful to talk through your results. Reach Australia offers a 30 minute debrief call to go through your results and help you work out some next steps. When you complete your assessment, we’ll email you the report and organise a time (if you wish) to work through it.
