Discover Your Gifts to Serve

Each of us has been gifted by God with unique talents, abilities, and passions, and we want to help you to learn and use those gifts. One of the ways to discover your gifts is through a Spiritual Gifts Assessment. The assessment normally takes about 10-12 minutes to complete, and your results will be emailed to you. Once your assessment is complete, we encourage you to browse our recommendations for serving opportunities unique to your gifts by looking through the Spiritual Gifts Match section below.
