Ministry Assessment Program

The Ministry Assessment Program, or MAP, provides assistance in three key areas.

  • It helps association and/or denomination leaders and ministry committees assess candidates for leadership.
  • It provides evaluations of candidates’ ministry readiness to associations, denomination leaders and ministry committees.
  • It assists individuals in the ministry who are considering a possible career change.

How do ministry assessments work?

The Ministry Assessment Program from Clergy & Congregation Care combines validated vocational and psychological assessments with two interviews. The result is the generation of a thorough report that is valuable for both the subject and the referring organization. Additionally, the report includes recommendations for helping the subject be successful in ministry.

Specifically, the ministry assessment provides feedback about:

  • Leadership style
  • Vocational preferences and satisfaction levels
  • Approaches to problem solving and coping
  • Interpersonal style
  • Gifts for ministry
  • Opportunities for growth

Typically, the ministry assessment process includes the use of:

  • Activity Vector Analysis (AVA) Assessment
  • 16 Personality Factors (16PF) assessment
  • Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory—Version 2
  • Structured social history interview
  • Psychological interview

For more information or to schedule an assessment, contact MAP Coordinator Kristine Campion at 717-560-9969 or email kcampion@scclanc.org.
