Helping Pastors discern whether it is time to stay or to seek their next call.


FreshLook combines two of the most powerful assessment tools available in the church today to help pastors in their discernment process:  The Church Assessment Tool and SIMA (System of Identified Motivated Abilities).  We weave together the information from these two assessments to get clarity on a single question:  Is this still a good fit?


The Church Assessment Tool is the only customizable, benchmarked assessment instrument specifically designed for transitions and strategic planning.  It will help you as a leader

  • Measure the level of energy and satisfaction in the church you lead.

  • Discover the critical success factors for improving organizational climate.

  • Identify the organizational culture along with strengths and potential challenges.

  • Discover where members would like to go in the future.

SIMA (System of Identified Motivated Abilities) is a unique, research based approach to helping leaders identify the ministry opportunities that are most likely to lead to joyful and effective service.


FreshLook doesn’t simply provide information, it integrates information into a comprehensive picture, assesses fit, and offers coaching on how to move forward.


FreshLook is not only designed for pastors, but for those trying to help pastors including denominational support persons.


FreshLook makes sense, no matter what decision is made.  If you go, you leave the church better prepared for its transition.  If you stay, you and your leaders are clearer about who you are and how you can best serve them.


What people are saying...


“My experience with SIMA has been nothing short of life-changing. The strategy helped me identify and develop my unique skills. I’ve recommended the process many times and am honored to recommend it again!”

Evidence-based discernment doesn't take God out of the process.
It puts information into the process so that you can spend less
time guessing and invest more energy into listening to God.
