What is YOUR Spiritual Gift?
According to Jeff Carver of the Spiritual Gifts website, “God has given each believer a spiritual gift that He wants us to use for His glory . . .” “He not only wants us to know our spiritual gifts, but He expects us to grow in them each day.” “You may already know what your spiritual gifts are. But, if you don’t, or just want to clarify what they are, we have both adult and youth spiritual gifts tests to help you find out. These tests do not guarantee what gifts you have, but they are helpful tools for you to get an idea of how you are gifted. We encourage you to take the test . . .”
Complete the form, submit, and answer the questions as instructed. Be aware that there are 105 questions, so be sure to allot time to complete the questionnaire.
