Do you ever wonder if God has created you for a purpose? He has! You were created to do something meaningful and significant in our world. God is calling each of us to serve others and make a difference in someone's life. That is what “Ministry” is all about.
In this three week class you will discover how God has uniquely shaped you with spiritual gifts, heart-felt desires, skills, personality and life experiences to make a unique contribution in the world.”
During this class, you will learn how God can use your Spiritual Gifts, your Heart (passions), your Abilities, Personality and Experiences to minister to others in need. This is discovering your SHAPE for ministry.
First, God gave you a special ability when you started following Him. We call this a Spiritual gift. God gave this gift to build up your church family and reach out to the world with Christ's love.
God also gave you unique passions and heart for particular activities, subjects and circumstances. God uses the things we feel deeply about to show us where we can serve. This is how people learn to serve with joy and not get burned out.
Third, you'll be given time to assess your various Abilities andsee how these will help you in your ministry.
God also gives us a Personality to share our SHAPE through. Everyone's personality is not the same, which makes the expression of our SHAPE that much more special.
Finally, you'll be able to reflect on the multitude of experiences in your life which have been used by God to mold you for ministry. The experiences of life help us know how to heal hurts of people in our church and in our community. All this combined, will let you discover your SHAPE for ministry.
