Converge Church Planter Assessment - Day 1

Cubs

Today Kalee and I made our way to Chicago for the Converge Church Planters Assessment. According to the Converge Worldwide website, the Converge assessment is:

An intensive four-day event staffed by trained assessors to encourage and observe church planting candidates. Candidates have the opportunity to preach, cast vision, work in team settings, and meet with counselors and assessors to prepare for life as a church planter. Assessors provide a personalized and thorough assessment of church planting candidates.

Essentially, it’s a process designed to help discern whether or not I am qualified, called, and equipped with the tools and gifts necessary to plant a church.

As we enter into this process, we’ve been absolutely overwhelmed with prayers and support from friends, family, members of the 2 Pillars community, Converge Heartland pastors, and complete strangers. I’m hoping to keep you all updated by posting a quick and dirty” recap/debrief after each day of the assessment here.

Some notes and highlights from today:

Fortunately, there are no more presentations to anticipate in the coming days.

Alright, I’m cutting this post short. It’s time for bed as we have another long day ahead of us. Thank you to all of you who are faithfully lifting us up in prayer this week.

More tomorrow.
