On these pages you will find a list of the competencies that Acts 29 considers essential when assessing church planters. Each competency has a list of micro skills that are associated with it, including Bible references. As you interact with these videos, papers and the self assessment questions, you will be equipped to examine whether or not you are a church planter and whether or not Acts 29 is the right family for your church.
In the following list of competencies & micro skills, three provisions should be kept in mind:
- Whilst cultural variation is to be expected, the following are a generic set which allow for appropriate cultural texture.
- Even when trying to assess someone relatively young & inexperienced, these competencies & skills should be present, at the very least, embryonically. There should certainly be nothing in the life of the aspiring planter that undermines or contradicts the following.
- The biblical references should not be cited as proof texts, but are illustrative & for general guidance.
