    How Did God Design You to Serve?

    Identifying your spiritual gifts is one of the most significant discoveries you will make in your life. It is one of the most important steps you can take for revealing your purpose and calling in this world. The Gift Test will help you take that step.

    What will it tell me?
    The Personal Gift Profile will:

    Reveal the realm of life-transformation to which your gifts primarily relate. Whether that be in the area of developing gifts (green), sharing gifts (red), or renewing gifts (blue).

    Provide you with explanations, Scripture references, possible tasks, dangers and tips for training your highest three gifts. It will also point you toward some latent gifts you may have. Gifts that, with some further exploration, experimentation and the blessing of God, may grow stronger in your life in the time ahead.

    Present your full gift continuum across the 30 measured gifts. This will fully reveal the uniqueness of your gift mix.

    Point you toward your ministry calling and the purpose of your life on the basis of your particular gift mix.

    What does it cost?
    A suggested donation of only 5 dollars to help defray the cost to the church.

    How do I get started?
    Taking the Gift Test involves you completing a survey about your ministry experiences and desires as well as asking a group of people to provide anonymous feedback on their observations of your unique abilities. That might be as few as two people or as many as you would like to be part of your discovery process. Each person will receive an email from the website we are using with instructions about how to complete the survey and information about the confidentiality of their answers. It will take them about 5 minutes.

    How could I use it with a Community Group?
    Step-by-step instructions will be provided for empowering a whole group of people, like a community group, to take the Gift Test, including taking stock of their collective gifts with the help of a group profile. How cool is that!

    Discovering and becoming more focused within your gifts will change the course of your life and enrich the lives of those around you.
