Ministry Potential

 


Your primary gifts as revealed on the Response Sheet should be a strong indicator as to how God has designed you. As you reflect on your gifts, it may help you to know that some people score themselves very high on some gifts, while other score themselves very low. Remember: it is more important to focus on the gifts where you rate the highest than to emphasize merely the numerical values.
