Can you really know what your five fold ministry gift is? Yes, you can! Before I share how you can know your five fold ministry gift, let me see if you’re like me:
Are you searching to know where you fit in ministry, specifically the fivefold ministry? Are you ready to have more fulfillment in ministry? Do you see tapping your five fold ministry gift stream as one of the keys to getting your answers?
I know where you are right now. I’ve been there.
Does this sound like you?
- You want a position that reflects your strengths, gifts and interests
- You want to commit to something that you really enjoy
- You want to impact the lives of those around you in a positive way
Like I said I know where you are because I’ve been there.
For over 15 years I’ve served as a ministry leader (Sunday School Supt., Youth Pastor, School of Ministry Instructor, Training and Development, Fine Arts, Media, etc.) and as an ordained elder since 1996. Many times throughout my 15 plus years in leadership I’ve noticed a lot of leaders fill, volunteer or be drafted for positions because there was a need, not because it was how God designed them or gifted them. As a result, many have felt tired, unfulfilled and empty.
Think about the choices you’ve made this year.
How many times have you said, “Yes” when you should have said, “No”.
How much time have you lost, valuable time being busy doing a good work, but not the God-given assignment that makes your heart sing?
How many leaders do you have in your ministry (you can include yourself here too), or personally know who are doing the wrong assignment?
In 2000, I deliberately started to examine my contribution to the Body of Christ. More importantly, I asked God what plans did he have in mind for me that would impact the kingdom and would prosper me spiritually and personally.
My search led to an important discovery about my C.A.P. What I discovered over time was that the place I had the most success and gave me the most fulfillment flowed out of one particular five fold ministry gift stream. That five fold ministry gift stream is teacher.
In 2005, I recieved a request from ministry leaders to look forways to fine tune where people serve in leadership. There were some general assessments, but none specifically that stood out for five fold ministry leaders.
- I spent hours interviewing ministry leaders (those using the five fold ministry model, those who wanted to grow their leaders and those who wnated to know more about five fold ministry).
- I compiled notes from my studies (introduced to and took graduate courses in five fold ministry in 1989) and experiences over the last 15 years, in addition to the Word of God which served as the foundation for this special charge to grow and equip leaders in the Body of Christ.
My desire to help you identify where you fit in ministry led to the development of the Wearing The Right C.A.P.(tm) Five Fold Ministry Assessment.
Is There a Better Way?
Absolutely! Since 2005, I’ve been administering the Wearing The Right C.A.P.(tm) Five Fold Ministry Assessment© to ministries and churches. We have been able to accurately assess the primary and secondary five fold ministry gift stream for leaders in various denominations and size. Our accuracy rate has been 96%. The assessment takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
In fact this first assessment has also birthed a workplace and youth assessment. I’m soooo excited with what God has done! The glory must go back to Him!!
