Spiritual Gift Assessment


To discover your gift or giftings, all you have to do is rate each characteristic from 1 to 10.

Total up your score at the end of each gift, then move on to the next gift. Then transfer all your totals at the bottom of the page, and you will see what your talent or giftings are and know where you are strong and where work needs to be done.
