Cultivate Will Help Confirm Your Calling Through Assessment
You complete our brief prospective planter questionnaire, provide references, and later complete the Lifeway Church Planter Candidate Assessment. This will help us to have a holistic picture of relative strengths to maximize, and areas of development to address during training. Also, a later detailed assessment will ensure your theological, philosophical, and practical preparation.
Cultivate Has a Comprehensive Training and Support Program
The duration is 6-24 months depending on your prior experience and training. We help cultivate the character, skills, and knowledge necessary to fulfill your calling to lead, teach, and serve through personal mentoring and online resources, including those from our collaboration with Western Seminary’s Center for Leadership Development. You’ll learn who should plant, why we need healthy gospel-centered communities, and how to plant. You’ll be taught the practical lessons you’ll need to be an effective church planter. You’ll learn core values that have been part of Calvary Chapel’s DNA, with direct interaction with seasoned practitioners and leaders, including Brian Brodersen, Rod Thompson, Wayne Talor, and others.
