**Spiritual Gifts Discovery
Instructions

The following exercise provides opportunity for you to respond to 105 statements about your interest in, and experience of, spiritual gifts. Do not respond on the basis of what you think you ought to say. Rather, respond on the basis of your interest and your experience. Do not let modesty hinder you from answering honestly about your abilities.

Rate each statement from 1 to 5 based upon your interest and experience. If a statement is not relevant to your experience, answer it by marking one (1) in the proper place. Mark a five (5) to indicate a strong tendency.

1 - Not at all
2 - Little
3 - Moderately
4 - Consistently
5 - Strong


The Gifts Discovery Instrument is a tool, not a final revelation. It is a means to an end, and the end is ministry, i.e., the building up of the body of Christ. The goal of this Instrument is for people to realize their potential in Christ as it relates to building God's Kingdom.

The instrument can be completed in about 45 minutes. It should be taken when you are in a relatively natural mood - not discouraged, anxious, or overly excited. Above all, the statements should be answered honestly.

After all 105 statements are completed, your responses will be transferred to the Answer Sheet.

For evaluation of the Instrument, there is no set score that determines whether or not you have a particular gift (20 being the highest possible). It is on an individual basis. For example, if one person's highest scores are 16,18,17,19, and 14, then those would be his /her gift tendencies. However, if someone scored 16,15,12,14 and 10, then those if they were the person's highest, would be just as valid an indication to that person's gift tendencies as the individual who scored higher.
