Spiritual Gifts Survey

"Spiritual Gifts Survey"

"Pastor and Church Leaders, have you ever taken a spiritual gifts survey or inventory? We would like to get your opinions about spiritual gift inventories. Please click the following link for spiritual gift inventory which will take you to a page on the HighPower site for a quick 8–question survey. It will take you just 2–minutes to complete. Thanks!"



Take a look at these two Factoids


Factoid #1: “It is true that almost everyone who has the gift of voluntary poverty also has the gift of giving (92 percent having 'giving ' among their five most prominent gifts). The inverse is not true, however. Our research states that only 15 percent of the Christians with the gift of giving also have the gift of voluntary poverty. ” Source: (Schwarz, Christian. The Three Colors of Ministry. St. Charles, IL: ChurchSmart Resources, 2001, p. 111.)

Factoid #2: “But, on average, the nation's richest 1%, who own two-fifths of U.S. wealth, donate just 2% of their incomes each year. ” Source: (†Philanthropy 2004, Provided by BusinessWeek Online, Dec. 21st, 2004 )
