Various spiritual gift surveys

These individual and group studies are intended to help new believer better pin point what their spiritual gift(s) might be so that they can better know how to serve in the Church. We normally have people take at least 3 of them and compare their answers. If the same answers account for their “top three” then odds are that those gifts are their spiritual gifts.
