Together, we’re able to make a transforming difference in families, neighborhoods, communities and the world. Whatever your age, interests, abilities or experiences, join us on this important journey!
STEP 1: COMPLETE the Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment
We believe that God has given you specific spiritual gifts and abilities to help people in our church, communities and world. Many people find it helpful to use a spiritual gifts discovery tool to affirm how God has gifted and shaped them to help others. With this in mind, we encourage you to take advantage of our new online Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment for valuable insights about your God-given talents.
This online tool takes about 10 minutes to complete. Once submitted, a copy of your results will be emailed to you and confidentially to Pastor Jim Peich (and the New Member Coaching Team if you are becoming a new member). If you do not have access to a computer or tablet, please contact Tiffany Conway for assistance.
Note: Answer each question to the best of your ability with the assurance that there is no right or wrong answer. A few of the assessment questions may include verbiage that is different than you typically experience at Manchester UMC.
STEP 2: REVIEW Your Results
As you review your results, remember that they are designed to help you explore how God has shaped you to help others. They offer guidance and are not meant to be absolute. We encourage you to PRINT YOUR RESULTS to prompt prayer, reflection and conversation as you consider how you can best fulfill God’s plans and purposes for your life using the spiritual gifts you have received.
