The CPAT (Church Planter Assessment Tool) is a new tool Geneva Push created to provide clear feedback on your suitability for ministry & your strengths. The CPAT assessment is broken into 3 categories:
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 the CPAT. 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.

Once you have completed the CPAT, 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. Geneva 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.
