Think About Your Gifts and Skills

What are your gifts?

  • Read 1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12, 1 Peter 4:7-10, and Ephesians 4.
  • The Church needs a variety of gifts. Each person has different gifts.
  • What do you like most to do? What do you do well?
  • Can you express your thoughts and feelings clearly?
  • How do you act as a leader? As a member of a group?
  • Are you curious about ideas?
  • Are you empathetic?
  • What are your skills? Make a list. Or, take a skills inventory.
  • In what ways are your gifts and skills suited for ordained ministry?
