Where do I fit in at The Turning Pointe?
"For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us." ......Romans 12:4-5
How to Identify Your Spiritual Gifts?
It is the role of the church to discern the gifts and graces necessary to resource the church's ministry AND to help The Turning Pointe's folks to know and understand their unique giftedness and how it plugs in to the One Body image mentioned in scripture.
Each year, worshipers are encourages to complete the TTP Spiritual Gifts Inventory. This brief 17-item questionnaire is used to determine specific areas of giftedness which are classified into one of three designations: Trusting, Together or Pointing to Jesus.
- Trusting Ministries
Being known by God and knowing Him is the heart of our spiritual life. Trust is the core of our relationship. God calls us into relationship with Him.
- Together Ministries
Fellowship will challenge us, encourage us, and help us stay accountable. By working together, we are showing obedience to God and his word. Below is what the Bible says about the importance of Together Ministries.
- Pointing to Jesus Ministries
Being a part of something larger than ourselves is one of the great gifts God gives us. Throughout his lifetime, Jesus provided a tangible example of what it means to be a servant leader. It is now our turn to show the world what Jesus is like. God intends, as long as we are on this earth, for us to bring others to the love and grace we have experienced and to use our Spiritual Gifts to help others Point to Jesus.
The results of the completed Inventories are entered into a church wide database. When specific ministry/mission opportunities arise, the Spiritual Gifts data is used to determine people who might enjoy participating in the project.
