The AIC Assessment Test
The Am I Called Assessment test is designed to help you assess your pastoral strengths and weaknesses, and help you determine if you are called to the role of pastoral ministry.
The test is built around the six questions in the “Am I Called?” book. Each question on the test is scored on a scale of 1-5, with 1 representing a significant weakness and 5 representing a significant strength.
A Few Things to Keep In Mind
• Scoring high on this test does NOT mean you are necessarily called to be a pastor.
• Scoring low on this test does NOT necessarily mean you are not called to be a pastor. Rather, this test is simply a tool to help you think more deeply about your own strengths and weaknesses, and what those strengths and weaknesses might reveal about your potential call to ministry.
• Because this test involves self-assessment, which is very subjective, you would be wise to have several other people grade you on these criteria. We would encourage your wife (or friends/roommates) and pastor to grade you on this test as well, but please do the self-assessment first.
