Celebrating More Than 50 Years of Service
LeaderWise offers a two-step model of candidate assessment. Along with screening for possible psychological concerns and appropriateness for ministry, the process emphasizes personal and professional development. Our goal is to work with the candidate to maximize her or his effectiveness in ministry. A third level of assessment is available for clergy transferring into your denomination from another one to screen for major mental health concerns. Candidate Assessments can be completed on site at LeaderWise or online through secure video conference.
Denominational or seminary leaders are often are faced with difficult personnel decisions. When it’s a question of fitness for ministry, our team of psychologists can provide an in-depth psychological and leadership assessment. We use highly regarded assessment tools — including scientifically validated inventories and behaviorally based interview questions — to determine an individual’s psychological state, interpersonal skills, and leadership capacity. You will receive a carefully written report that details our findings about fitness for ministry as well as clear recommendations about next steps.
Wondering about next steps in your ministry? Our highly skilled staff has more than fifty years' experience guiding clergy through the process of vocational discernment. In fact, it’s the primary reason our center was founded in 1969. Over the years, we’ve perfected a two-day program that will assist you in weighing the advantages and disadvantages of staying in your current ministry setting, looking or moving to a new one, or, if it’s in the back of your mind, possibly leaving ministry altogether. Your visit is held in strict confidence.
