The Gallop Mission Developer Survey

Discernment about whether or not God is calling you into church planting is the single most important leadership decision. The world famous Gallop organization has developed a survey called the Gallop SRI Talent Dimensions to aid in discernment of behaviors and skills needed in planting a church. Sower’s Field offers this survey and a private consultation discussion time Dr. Stan Wood, during which time your survey results and their meaning are reviewed.

Take a 30 minute online “Mission Developer” survey developed by the Gallup Organization—the survey measures talents for church planting along the following dimensions: motivation, influence, work style, relationship, thought process.
