How to Set up and Give a Spiritual Gifts Assessment


  1. Personally ask a person to take the Spiritual Gifts Assessment. People are much more likely to respond to a personal request than an impersonal announcement. Have them go to this website, take the assessment, and email you and them the results.
  2. Set a time to get together with the person to go over their Spiritual Gifts results. Allow for at least an hour, up to two hours for this. There is a lot to go through, and people like to think and talk about themselves. And most people have never had someone get together and just talk about them and how they can use the gifts that God has given them. They will value this time together.
  3. Begin with a prayer. Then explain what Spiritual Gifts Are. - To understand Spiritual gifts, click on this link.
  4. Go through the person’s Spiritual Gifts results.- Read the definition of the first Spiritual gift. Read through the “characteristics” of the first Spiritual gift. Ask the person being assessed to comment where something stands out or where they have an experience to share that is triggered by the characteristics.- Repeat this for the remaining Spiritual gifts that were in the person’s top Spiritual gifts.
  5. Re-rank Top 5 Spiritual Gifts - After reading through the Spiritual gifts, have the person begin to re-rank their Spiritual gifts, beginning with the one that they feel strongest about. Keep the top five Spiritual gifts.
  6. Have the person apply their Spiritual gifts to the various aspects of their lives. - Have them write down a Spiritual gift and how they would use this gift in their work/workplace/neighbor settings,  their church/ministry settings, and their family. Try to come up with 1-3 application in each of these areas. As much as possible, let them come up with the application, for they are far more likely to follow through with whatever ideas they come up with.


How to Set up and Give a Strengths and Spiritual Gifts Assessment

  1. In addition to steps the steps above, ask a potential “recruit” to take the Strengths Finder  survey. Note - The code for taking the Strengths Finder can only be obtained by purchasing the book, Now, Discover Your Strengths or StrengthsFinder 2.0. Once the code is obtained from the book, then it enables one person to take the inventory.
  2. Explain the Strengths Finder theory.- The Strengths Finder was designed by the Gallup Organization and was tested on over 2 million people- The Strengths Finder a high internal consistency, which means that if a person were to retake the test soon afterwards, most of the results would probably stay the same. What might change is the order of the Strengths, or a number five strength might switch with a number six.- Strengths are primarily your raw “talent” plus a little bit of experience-

    When a person is born, he or she has billions of synapses; however, by agree three, most of the synapses have disappeared. This sounds like we are getting dumb, but actually this happens so that the remaining synapses work lightning fast. These “fast track” neural pathways are the raw talent for a person’s Strengths. When we are working within our Strengths, it feels natural and easy. In fact, it feels so easy that either we take our Strengths for granted and assume everyone can do what we can do; or, we are very hard on others who do not have our Strengths. These Strengths are part of the unique ways that God has made us, and our goal is to work within our Strengths as much as possible in the various areas of our lives.
  3. Go through the person’s Strengths Finder results.- Read the definition of the first Strength- Read through the “Action Items” for the first Strength found in the Strengths Finder book if you have an extended amount of time. Ask the person being assessed to comment where something stands out or where they have an experience to share that is triggered by the action item.- Repeat this for the other four Strengths
  4. Help the person apply their Strengths and Spiritual gifts to the various aspects of their lives. - This application includes a person’s work/workplace/word, his or her family, and his or her church/ministry setting.
