Spiritual Gifts Discovery
"The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ"
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NRSV)
Spiritual gifts are special abilities, given by God, for Christian service. Whether you are aware of yours or not, every believer has them. We are best able to serve when we are serving in ways that utilize our innate giftedness in areas of ministry about which we are passionate, that meet real needs. As you try to discern the ministries and areas of service to which God is calling you, an important step is to know what your spiritual gifts are. There are many tools out there that can help you understand your spiritual gifts. We have chosen to use the “Spiritual Gifts Discovery” tool. When you click the link to the right, it will take you to the assessment page. It takes 5 - 10 minutes to complete and will give you a report of the degree to which you exhibit each of the 16 spiritual gifts it explores. Generally, the first 3 will be your strongest spiritual gifts. You will also have an opportunity to download a 1 page pdf for each of the gifts that describes it, gives Bible references for it, a biblical example of someone with that gift, and possible ways of serving.
Your gifts will also be recorded so that we can be in touch with you about possible ways of serving at TBC that take best advantage of your gifts.
