About Your Spiritual Gifts
Spiritual gifts are tools God gives Christians to do the work of the ministry-- to fulfill the Great
Commission to reach, baptize, and teach and to minister to one another. Every Christian
receives at least one gift at the moment of salvation. Spiritual gifts are not rewards, are not
natural talents, are not a place of service, are not an age-group ministry, and are not a specialty
ministry. They express themselves through various ministries which, in turn, accomplish a
variety of results. A spiritual gift is the primary channel by which the Holy Spirit ministers
through the believer. It is a supernatural capacity for service to God — and He gives you a
supernatural desire to perform the duties of that gift. Spiritual gifts are tools for building the
church. They are a source of joy in your Christian life and influence your motives. A spiritual gift
is a divine calling with a divine responsibility, because what God has gifted you to do, He has
called you to do, and what He has called you to do, He has gifted you to do.
Three categories of spiritual gifts exist. CATEGORY ONE: The Miraculous Gifts, generally
known today as Charismatic Gifts (apostles, tongues, interpretation of tongues, healing, and

develop (faith, discernment, wisdom, and knowledge — qualities possessed rather than
activities performed). Many scholars combine these gifts with others, based on the similarity of
these gift characteristics and the synonyms used by Paul to describe them in Scripture. For
example, some scholars combine Discernment with Prophecy, Knowledge with Teaching,
Wisdom with Exhortation, and Hospitality with Serving. CATEGORY THREE: the Team Gifts,
which are service-, ministry-, task-oriented or are activities performed such as teaching. The
Team Gifts are functional and involve speaking or ministering. Chances are, you have several
of these gifts that vary in degrees and intensity. In many cases, spiritual gifts may complement
your secular employment. The Spiritual Gifts Analysis you took identified your dominant TEAM
GIFTS, which will help find your place on God's team in your church. Prayer and serving God
will also help you see where God wants you to serve in ministry in your church and daily life.
This profile gives you a simple bar graph showing your strengths (higher scores, longer bars)
and weaknesses (lower scores, shorter bars) as related to spiritual gifts, and analyzes in-depth
your dominant and secondary team gifts which are the ones that will have greater influence in
your life. These are the areas where you are gifted to be most effective and efficient and in
which you will find it easiest to excel.
Your dominant gifts are Administration, Serving
The results of your Spiritual Gifts Inventory indicate that
your number one dominant gift is ADMINISTRATION’ The
Greek word “kubernesis” means one who steers a ship.
This expert had the responsibility to bring a ship into the
harbor through the rocks and shoals, under all types of
pressures. As an administrator you have the Spirit-given
capacity and desire to serve God by organizing,
administering, promoting, and leading the various affairs
of the church. The administrator is not a glorified file clerk.
As an administrator you are a take-charge person who
jumps in and starts giving orders when no one is in
charge. You will put a plan on paper and start delegating
responsibility. You may lean toward organizing things,
events or programs, OR toward organizing people,
emphasizing personal relationships and leadership
responsibilities. In the first case, you usually organize
details and have people carry them out. In the second
case, you tend to organize people and rely on others to
take care of the little things.
You don’t often admit to mistakes and do not like to take
time to explain why you are doing things; you just expect the job to get done. If things in the
church, office, club, etc. become fragmented, you can harmonize the whole program if given a
chance. You are a person with a dream and are not afraid to attempt the impossible. You are
goal-oriented, well-disciplined, and work best under heavy pressure. You are often a good
motivator and not a procrastinator. You are serious minded, highly motivated, intense, and
have an accurate self-image. You tend to be more interested in the welfare of the group than
your own desire. You are probably a perfectionist.

Well back to packing only 5 days to go!
