Episode 15: Assessment of Potential Leaders

The Upstream Podcast was created to share our rich conversations about sending churches with the world. For anyone passionate about the overlap between God’s church & God’s mission, this podcast will be great food for thought.

In this episode, Brad is back (at least virtually) with Derick to discuss the topic of leader assessment. As a new church planter, Derick is able to pull much from his recent experience of going through an assessment before moving to Denver where his church plant, The Oaks Community Church is located.  The two discuss how assessment is needed for the church body to know the health and maturity of a Christian before they step into a leadership role as well as it's benefits to the person being assessed, part of which is a deeper knowledge one's story and how that plays out in relation to God and others.
