God gives each of us the astounding opportunity to be co-authors of his Story by making a unique difference for God and for good in this world.

As disciples of Jesus, we must make a careful exploration of who we are, sifting through the sands of our history, in order to uncover the unique passions, gifts, strengths, and callings God has in mind for us.

Courage & Calling (Gordon T. Smith)
Calling is wider than occupation. It also includes your giftedness, limitations, relationships and what you do each day as God’s co-worker.


God has given each believer one or more spiritual gifts to use for God’s glory (1 Cor. 12:4-11; Rom. 12:6-8; 1 Peter 4:10-11).

Jesus calls us to use our gifts to partner with him in extending God’s loving rule and reign on earth. God not only wants us to know our spiritual gifts, but expects us to develop them and use them regularly.

This spiritual gifts test will help you discover or reaffirm the gifts God has given you.
