All of us have gifts, skills, and personalities which affect how we respond to situations and how we see the world. When you understand your strengths and motivations, you can apply them intentionally. A healthy church body is made up of many individuals who are able to use their gifts together to bring God glory and love one another. We have created some simple exercises to walk you through discovering how you are most effective. Each of the links will take you to a google doc with questions to answer. Your results will automatically be sent to yourself and our serve coach.
The DISC personality test is designed to test your personality according to four categories: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance based on your everyday typical behavior. Find out how the DISC factors predict your behavior towards others and the everyday things you do.
Spiritual Gifts Assessment
The spiritual gifts are found in three separate passages in the New Testament (Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 12–14; and Ephesians 4). The lists are not exactly identical. Some overlapping occurs. Regardless of the exact classification, all these verses agree that a spiritual gift is a God-given ability, distributed to individual Christians by the Holy Spirit that allows him/or her to work through their lives to help the church execute its mission on earth.
The skills, abilities, and gifts that make up your personality are often naturally tied to the things that motivate you. It's helpful to find where you best fit by identifying the people who are meaningful to you or the situations that cause you to respond.
