Plant Planter Assessment

Planter Assessment

Hope Partnership for Missional Transformation offers Planter Assessment to individuals interested in becoming a new church planter. This assessment is an online tool developed by the Gallup Corporation, in conjunction with seven mainline Protestant churches in the United States. This multiple-choice question survey compares the responses given by the person during the survey against 400 successful and 400 unsuccessful new church planters.  The potential new church planter is asked questions in the following categories:

  • Motivation
  • Influence
  • Workstyle
  • Relationship
  • Thought Process


Following completion of the online assessment, a candidate participates in an hour-long conversation with a Hope Partnership staff member, during which the candidate’s past performance (the best indicator for future performance as it pertains to new church planting and church growth) is explored. This conversation must be completed before attending the Leadership Academy, an intensive training experience that occurs in February and September of each year.

To take the online assessment, which requires an access code, please call us at 1-800-274-1883, info@hopepmt.org.
