Over 40 ways to serve
SERVANTS OF GOD
The word “ministry” comes from the Greek word “diakoneo” which means “to serve.” We all have
different gifts and Christian Ministry is seen as service to God. It is not centered around our own needs; but rather on the needs of helping to build the kingdom within the church and in our community.

Your Spiritual Gifts
so you can be a good and faithful Servant
WHAT ARE SPIRITUAL GIFTS
Some of our spiritual gifts are obvious, but others can be difficult to identify. You might discover which spiritual gifts you have, including which ones are the strongest, through prayer, and serving at our church.
You can begin serving before you know your gifts because the experience will give you insight into where you work best.
INQUIRE AND VOLUNTEER
Before joining a ministry, shadow several first then volunteer to work on a task or event with that ministry.
Understanding where you can use your gifts will provide blessings to your church and others. Always pray and ask God what he wants for you before fully committing.
