  • Self-Evaluation

    Below is a list of characteristics that have shown to be common to effective church planters in the Simple Church network. Each one contains a descriptive paragraph, scale for self-evaluation and a related question. This is not a pass/fail test. It is the first step in a formational Discernment Process. Once you have completed the Self-Evaluation there will be an opportunity to debrief this with a member of the Gen1K Mission Team. They will then explain how you can use this rubric to have Discernment Conversations with people in your life who know you well and provide you with a template to record your strengths and areas for growth.
