Servant Profile

Servant Profile

Spirit-led Servant is one of our Core CHRISTlike Characteristics. Jesus was a Spirit-led Servant and we want to become more like Him. The Holy Spirit has lovingly and uniquely “SHAPED” each of us to serve; this SHAPE is your Servant Profile. When we serve according to our SHAPE, people are helped, we find fulfillment, and God is glorified.

1 Peter 4:10 says “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace.”

To help you find your unique Servant Profile, we recommend you start by taking the below Spiritual Gifts assessment to help you learn about your gifting area.

After you finish the Spiritual Gift Assessment below, take the time to complete each of the following surveys to finish identifying the rest of your Servant Profile. God bless you as you discover your SHAPE and serve!
