What's PLACE?

In 1998 we developed a personal, biblically-based discovery tool (PLACE) that focuses on five separate elements that are designed to work in tandem with one another:

The P in PLACE is for Personality Discovery. Our unique personality assessment will help you discover what makes you “you.”

The L in PLACE is for Learning Spiritual Gifts. PLACE uses a giftedness assessment to see where you fall among 16 Spiritual Gifts referenced in scripture.

The A in PLACE is for Abilities Awareness. In this assessment, you will discover the optimal environment for you to use your natural abilities in a way that brings fulfillment.

The C in PLACE is for Connecting Passion with Ministry. Identifying what you’re truly passionate about will lead you to an area of ministry that aligns with your heart.

The E in PLACE is for Experiences of Life. Where you’ve been is valuable information to consider when determining where you can serve most effectively.
