Discerning Missional Leadership Assessments are an important part of your development, because faithful and self-aware leaders propel new worshiping communities forward. 

We want to make assessments available for everyone leading or considering leadership of a new worshiping community. We even have a process for teams. These assessments take place around the country in small groups, typically last 4–5 days, and are available to help anyone discern how they might better sustain or prepare for this important ministry.

During the Missional Leadership Assessment, you will work in teams of people going through the same process. You will take part in spiritual reflection and missional theological reflection about your context in ministry, do some team-work exercises, get insights on your leadership style, and take part in an in-depth behavioral interview process.

Our goal is to hold up a mirror to you that allows you to see your gifts and goals clearly, and to also know the kind of people you might want around you as you pursue a new thing. All participants will leave with concrete advice about next steps and a recommendation from the assessment team of, “it’s a fit; it’s not a fit; or it’s a potential fit in the future.”

Once you have registered, you will receive an email with detailed instructions regarding questionnaires, references, and balance payment of the registration fee to complete prior to the event. These materials are typically due one month before the event starts.

This DML Assessment will take place at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and will begin at 3:30 p.m., August 19, 2024 and end by 12:00 p.m., August 23, 2024. Please let us know your arrival and departure information.
