SPIRITUAL GIFTS PRIMER

BY TYLER MILLER

In this video, Tyler introduces the concept of spiritual gifts and stresses the importance of a unified language and framework within the church for discussing them. He highlights the need for Scripture to inform our spiritual experience and establishes a biblical foundation of spiritual gifts, emphasizing their use in love for the benefit of the body of Christ.

 

SPIRITUAL GIFTS ASSESSMENT

Take 5-10 minutes to complete the assessment! You will receive an email with a copy of your results to keep. We want to emphasize that this assessment is a tool and a starting point for us to begin a conversation - this is not the definitive word on your spiritual gift(s). As Tyler mentioned, we pray this creates a common language and starting place for our church family.

POST-ASSESSMENT VIDEO

In this video, Tyler guides us in interpreting our spiritual assessment results, breaking them down into three categories: love gifts, word gifts, and power gifts. He provides insightful questions to help us discern our spiritual gifts and emphasizes their role in serving Christ and the Church.
