Ministry Discovery

ministrydiscovery_logo.gif“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others.” I Peter 4:10

God gives every believer one or more spiritual gifts at the time of salvation and intends that these gifts be used for meaningful service. Park Cities strives to be a church where every member is a minister.

Ministry Discovery is a process to help you identify your spiritual gifts, understand how you might use them, and connect with an opportunity to exercise your spiritual gifts at Park Cities or in one of our partner ministries. Start by reading about the biblical understanding of spiritual gifts. Next, take the Basden-Johnson Spiritual Gift Analysis, using the online survey. Completing the survey should take about 10 minutes. Review the explanation of C.O.M.P.A.S.S., which is an acronym for a process that helps organize information about an individual’s gifts, preferences, and experiences in order to identify a place of service. Then complete and submit the online C.O.M.P.A.S.S. The form is reviewed by our Ministry Discovery Staff, who will respond to you within a few days. You can also review our catalog of ministry opportunities and make your own selection.
