Divine Design Assessment Process
Better understanding your spiritual gifts is a 3 part process at the Journey: Complete a series of simple assessments, document your findings and draft a 'Divine Design' statement and finally meet with one of the Pastors to discuss the results and identify opportunities for you to use your gifts at the Journey.
When taking the assessment remember, always try to go with your initial response. Also, try to respond in terms of how you actually live, not how you think you should live. Try to express your own preference and not mirror what you think others expect of you, or even what your home, ministry or job situation demands from you.
If you have questions at any point in the process please contact Pastor Matthew.
