Complete a full day Ridley (PAS) Assessment Interview
Dr. Charles Ridley developed the Profile Assessment System to identify 13 prominent performance dimensions that demonstrate a high capacity for leading church multiplication. Through an extended interview, an assessor (or assessment team) will explore how a candidate demonstrates key characteristics in their past. Candidates are asked to share from their past experience to provide specific examples for each area explored. The assessment team will provide a comprehensive report detailing a candidate's strengths and potential weaknesses which will provide direction in developing a potential multiplication plan.
