SPIRITUAL GIFTS
Welcome to the study of Spiritual Gifts! The material included in this study contains practical information and a variety of exercises designed to help you and the members of your congregation to discover and to explore your spiritual gifts, both individually and as a church family.

A Spiritual Gifts Inventory is a personal assessment too developed to assist you in the process of identifying which spiritual gifts you may possess. This inventory consists of one hundred (100) statements. Some of these statements communicate concrete actions; some are descriptive terms; others are statements of personal values and beliefs.
