"But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love." Ephesians 4:15-16
Realizing the Need: Many ministry leaders sooner or later come to realize that they personally and/or their ministry team needs to conduct a 360 assessment. They see that this type of full-circle evaluation will provide greater detail and a clearer understanding of themselves and their church leaders from a much broader pool of feedback providers. With an extended collection of raters working together, this constructive tool reveals opportunities for mentoring and development; while it also provides a more accurate, useful and just assessment of themselves and/or the congregation's spiritual leaders.
Find the Solution: The next step in making the assessment happen is to find the best 360 solution for the pastor and/or ministry team. Though many churches know they need to conduct an assessment, they aren't quite sure where to start. Should they select competencies that are specific to their congregation, their Christ centered life and/or managerial requirements? Who will put it all together? How long will the project take? How much of an investment is it?
Many church administers reach out to us at this point in their planning process. The quick and easy solution we advise in order to "get their feet wet" is to use CompleteSurvey's ministry specific out-of-the-box solution.

The Senior Learning Advisor for Compassion International had this to say about their experience with CompleteSurvey's ministry evaluation and report summaries:
"My organization conducted fifty 360 assessments on our leadership team last year, and we used CompleteSurvey. Their staff was very easy to work with and responsive to changes as the process went on. They took care of all the survey communications and produced sharp-looking reports for us to present to our leaders. The process was a huge leap forward in our leadership development."
