Overview of Spiritual Gifts, © 2018, Greg Wiens
In the Overview of Spiritual Gifts book, we provide a unified look into the Spirit-given gifts endowed upon every Christ-follower at the time of their conversion and perhaps during their growth and maturing as a disciple of Jesus Christ. This book is not biased toward any particular theological background. If you are a Christ-follower, or if you’re just seeking to understand what is meant by Spiritual Gifts, we believe there is something for you in this book!
TrueWiring for Churches: A Field Guide to Understanding Your Results © 2019, Greg Wiens, Stephen Lewis, and Dave Phillips [Fall 2019]
This book provides some background for each of the 5 assessment instruments included in TrueWiring for Churches suite, their intended use, and detailed discussion about the themes and scales shown in your results. To help unpack the 15 themes and 59 scales, the field guide presents a detailed look at the reports with a focus on understanding what the scores indicate, some key takeaways, and typical scale comparisons across instruments. This book will help you understand how these instruments indicate your hard-wiring, things that are not likely to change, and software, areas where you can grow, along with recommendations to help maximize your Kingdom impact.
The Art of Assessing People © 2020, Greg Wiens [Spring 2020]
Have you ever thought of yourself as an assessor? The truth is that we are all assessors. We assess ourselves, people, and situations then make judgments based upon those assessments. The question isn’t whether or not you make assessments; the question is whether you make v assessments or not! This book is intended to help you make better assessments of people, starting with yourself. Whether you are interested in assessment instruments to better understand yourself, help your children discover their strengths, assist the people in your small group in finding their calling in ministry, or teach staff members to fulfill their A-game in vocational work, this book offers something for you.
Online Learning – Introductory Classes
These introductory classes provide insight into the purpose for each instrument, their intended use, and specifics about the reports that are generated as a result. Each module begins with a video that shows you what is being measured and how to interpret the results. We also include a downloadable PDF workbook with appropriate exercises to improve your knowledge about assessment instruments in an effort to help you see why we’ve created the suite and how it is designed to work for you.

Church Assessor Class (Orlando, FL) – 12 hours
Our TrueWiring Assessor Classes gives you an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the entire assessment suite. The class begins with a full-day discussion of each assessment instrument, why we developed the instrument, how it’s used appropriately (or not), the actual items used to compute the scores and some of the psychometrics behind the instruments. We’ll challenge you to try and coerce the instrument to give you a desired result and discuss the pitfalls of self-reporting instruments. After a full day of working hard, some call this drinking from a firehose, we break for the evening and let some of the details sink in overnight. The second half-day includes exercises with more interaction geared toward giving you the tools you need to effectively assess people using these tools.
