Spiritual Gifts Assessment

This is not a test, so there are no wrong answers. This assessment consists of 80 statements. Some statements reflect concrete actions and others are descriptive traits or statements of belief. Your response to each of these statements will help to calculate which spiritual giftings are likely yours. Your results will be emailed to an Elder who will reach out to you to help you interpret your results.

  • Select the one response you feel best characterizes yourself and place that number in the blank provided.
  • Do not spend too much time on any one item. Remember, it is not a test. Usually your immediate response is best.
  • Please give an answer for each item. Do not skip any items.
  • Do not ask others how they are answering or how they think you should answer.
  • Work at your own pace.

Your response choices are:

  1. Not at all characteristic of me. Definitely untrue for me.
  2. Occasionally characteristic of me. True for me 25% of the time.
  3. Frequently characteristic of me. True for me 50% of the time.
  4. Most of the time this would describe me. Ture for me 75% of the time.
