New River Community Church of God
Discover the Joy of Serving
Welcome to the world of spiritual gifts! God has given every Christian with at least one spiritual gift, and probably more. This questionnaire is designed to help you understand what your top 3-5 spiritual gifts are and how to use them in ministry.
Andrew P. Kulp* developed Gifted2Serve beginning with the Bible and then researching several other inventories. He developed a series of questions based on his scriptural understanding of each of the spiritual gifts and then balanced them with his perception of how each gift is used at the Church he was serving at the time. Gifted2Serve was designed so that people may understand how God has placed them in the local body. May every member of the Church find their place in ministry at their local Church.
