From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every support ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. (Ephesians 4:16)
Wondering where to get plugged in at The Village? Have you considered what you and/or your church can do to "spur one another on toward love and good deeds?" (Heb. 10:24) Is your leadership team modeling what it means to serve according to God's power and grace through the use of their gifts? Does equipping need to begin there?
The first step will be to discover your spiritual gifts. Free gifts surveys are offered through our Education Ministry - Contact Diane Kelly at email@example.com, or at the church office 687-0337.
Look at the possibilities for using your spiritual gift mix.
You can use your giftedness in a variety of ministry areas within the church targeting different people or issues or in the informal context of body life outside of the church walls.
Based on your spiritual gifts, in what ministry areas should you serve?
Within those areas, what best fits your personality and heart's passion?
Develop your spiritual gifts by training in the areas using your gifting.
Are you willing to do what is necessary for God to mold, shape, and use you for His glory?
What steps do you need to take to prepare to line up with God's design and plan for your life?
God has given every Christian spiritual gifts for doing the work of the ministry in everyday life and through the church. When Christians identify and exercise their own God-given spiritual gifts, they receive maximum fulfillment with minimum frustration.
