Interpreting the Gifts Questionnaire

  • The "gifts questionnaire" is designed to reveal our main areas of motivation and fruitfulness. The things that we enjoy doing and have success in, reveal where God has "graced us" (Eph 4:7).
  • The questionnaire is meant to be only a help in the process of discovering your areas of spiritual gifting. The "margin of error" in the questionnaire results, depends upon your objectivity, honesty and maturity level.
  • Your top 3 scores will indicate your primary gift areas. Your next 3 scores indicate your major supportive gift areas. These 6 gift areas are your "gift cluster" and determine your motivation and fruitfulness in ministry (Prov 18:16).
  • The gift areas that we score high in do not indicate specific areas of ministry. A ministry is an area of service in which a gift is expressed. Our sense of "calling" combines with our gifts to give us our place of ministry.
  • The results of this questionnaire do not show the "measure" of your gift areas. Our “measure" of gift is revealed by its quality, degree and effectiveness as it is expressed in ministry service.
  • Our different gift profiles show the sovereignty of God in creating each of us as unique individuals. By His wise and sovereign Will, He has given each of us special gifts and called us to unique functions in His Church (I Cor 12:15-18).

Because of the new life and the workings of the Holy Spirit within, people will naturally grow in their gifts and graces if the right teaching and structure is in place for them to do so.

  • Teach about God's plan, purpose and structure for the New Testament Church.
  • Teach about the new identity, calling and power we have as sons and daughters of God (Jn 1:12, II Cor 5:17).
  • Teach on New Testament Church government as providing the order and protection for a healthy growing Church (Eph 4:11-12, I Thess 5:12-13, Heb 13:17).
  • Teach on spiritual gifts and their role in ministry.
  • Make the public meetings a time of congregational participation by having testimonies, time of praying for one another, freedom to prophecy etc.
  • Develop small group meetings where more people can participate.
  • Make a list of responsibilities that new Christians can become involved in and encourage ministry heads to invite them to participate.
  • Use your encounters with prayer group members to encourage them in the gifts and abilities that you see in them. Teach your leaders to do the same thing.
  • Make room for the gift ministries that begin to emerge in your people.
  • Build a leadership team that has the same vision.
