Pastor Antoine Lee of Central Christian Church in Kansas City was eager to complete seminary, but work, family – and cost – made a Master of Divinity degree program seem unobtainable, until Rev. Debra Sermons, Central's Director of Recruitment, told him about the create program and the thoughtful planning that goes into each individual's schedule.
The create program is fully scholarshiped, schedules are designed for busy people, and classes are offered in Kansas City's urban core. “It was like they met all my needs before knowing my personal situation!” says Antoine. “I express sincere gratitude for everyone who was involved in making it possible for me to continue my education. Thank you!”

THE PEOPLEMAP COMMUNICATION SYSTEM: A Way to Enhance Your Interpersonal Communication and Leadership Effectiveness
Peoplemap is a powerful, yet fun and practical learning program. Each participant completes the same seven item questionnaire. This inventory, with 95% accuracy in identifying your personality type, is designed to show each person’s way of relating to others, solving problems, leading and getting work accomplished.
Each person’s questionnaire is immediately self-scored to determine their personality type: Leader, People, Free Spirit, Task. Each type has three in-born strengths, as well as a “weak spot” that we call the Achilles Heel. When understood, the Achilles Heel can be turned into a “learned” strength. Therefore, each personality type as specific areas they need to address in their own growth and development so they can perform at their highest level.
HOW WILL IT BENEFIT US AND WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
Most people in congregations believe in and want effective relationships. The Peoplemap provides a hands-on tool for building interpersonal relationships. Participants understand themselves better, while developing a new appreciation for other personality types. They leave the workshop with useable skills they can use immediately. Clergy, Church Staffs, and Lay Leaders will develop:
- Better relationships internally & externally
- Enhanced team and committee effectiveness
- More effective communication
- Increased mission advancement
- Stronger appreciation for the value of all personality types
Church Staffs that participate together will immediately gain increased team functioning.
