Spiritual Assessment

The Spiritual Gifts Assessment helps individuals identify their God-given gifts for living faithfully as Christian disciples day by day and find meaningful ways to use their gifts in connection with others through the community of faith. The process helps people understand the nature of spiritual gifts and ways to enhance the effectiveness of their gifts by linking together with others.

Each summer we take a group on a mission trip to Guatemala through Faith Project International.  The purpose of this mission is to build stoves for rural families.  By building efficient wood-burning stoves, women can cook without breathing in smoke, the process is safer, and rapid deforestation is prevented.

Missions

Missionary experiences are one of the most unique experiences a person can have in life.  All missionary experiences, although unique to the individual, all start out the same.  They all start with a calling from God.  Maybe that’s why you are reading this right now.  If it is, welcome, you are in great company.  We are here because we listened and to that calling and want help you answer God’s call in your life.  We can tell you with confidence that you will forever be changed.
