Spring Assessment

Spring Assessment

Northwest Church Planting, in conjunction with Alliance Northwest, will administer its next Assessment for future church planters on May 20-23.

Because assessment is key contributor to the long-term effectiveness of new churches, we seek to offer an intensive behavioral assessment to those that are seeking to plant.

Formal church planting Assessment is a four-day experience to help you discover your best fit in a church plant. We assess your character readiness and leadership skills as a lead planter. You'll finish the week with:

  • An assessment of your personal & marital health

  • A clear picture of your personal "wiring"

  • Your leadership strengths & growth points identified

  • A personal & holistic growth plan with a recommended timeline to start church planting

Learn more about how Assessment fits into Northwest Church Planting’s process here.

Prepare to Plant at Bootcamp

Prepare to Plant at Bootcamp

Practice may make perfect, but training makes teams and individuals effective

Alliance Northwest Bootcamp is a FREE three-day event led by experienced church planters and leaders, designed to develop your understanding of your ministry context, values, vision, strategy, and structures. Additionally, you will develop great connections with other leaders around the Field.

Bootcamp is a chance to learn from those who have been where you are, and understand what it's like. The three days are a mix of teaching, lab time, and interactions with other teams. 

This event is great for students, those considering church planting, a church planter and spouse, a church planting core team, and has also been hugely beneficial for those leading existing churches.

A church planter from Southern Oregon said this:

Never plant a church without Bootcamp.  The invaluable thing that Bootcamp did for our launch team is it forced us to extract vision.  We would never have been able to duplicate the intensity of the experience on our own.  Leaving Bootcamp with a team that has clarity of vision has been the foundation of our unity and success.

 

Registration Details:

Registration and meals for this event are free, provided by Northwest Church Planting.

Bootcamp will take place at East Park Church in Vancouver, Washington.We will reserve a block of rooms for attendees at a nearby hotel, so please contact us if you will be needing accommodations.  If reserving a room will be a financial burden for you, scholarships will be available based on need.

For more information or to sign up for this event, contact Amber at amber@alliancenw.org or 503-685-9160. 

Reservation deadline is August 6.
