Spiritual Gifts Assessment
To help our adult and youth attendees sync up and respond to Pastor John Christie's 2nd retreat message (late Saturday morning) and workshop (early Saturday afternoon) on "Your Unique Gifting to Engage Your Family, Church and World", please complete a short Spiritual Gifts assessment prepared by "LifeWay Christian Resources". The assessment takes about 15-20 minutes to complete all 80 one-liner questions. With the help of the Excel spreadsheet, it categorizes the answers automatically into Spiritual Gifts. If you prefer to do the assessment manually (i.e., not depends on PC and Excel spreadsheet), please download & print-out the PDF version instead. The Spiritual Gift List contains short definition for each of the spiritual gifts for your references. Please do the assessment as soon as you can before the retreat (Friday, 9/29/2017).
