Assessment and Training for Urban Church Planters

One of the subjects we discussed at a recent gathering for Philly church planters was the assessment process and training for planting churches in urban areas. Many groups/movements provide assessments to help determine one’s giftedness, character, and calling to church planting. However, an assessment in California, Florida, or elsewhere by assessors without urban experience might need to be complemented by urban specific assessment and assessors.  Further, church planting training in suburban classrooms by men who have no church planting experience or no urban experience cannot adequately prepare men for urban ministry. Are you called to urban church planting? Then there is no substitute for working with a church plant in an urban setting in order to have confirmation of your gifts and calling.
