A Word from Bill

Greetings Pastors and Church Leaders!

This month you will see a couple of links related to Spiritual Gifts. First, you can download the free spiritual gifts inventory and use it for your entire church if you would like.

Second, take a look at the two Factoids related to spiritual gifts. Christian Schwarz has done quite a bit of study about spiritual gift distribution in the local church. See if your church is above average for Interpretation and Mercy.

And most importanlty, be sure to help your people put their spiritual gifts into practice. Maybe some training classes on spiritual gifts this summer would get the church ready to serve well in the Fall.

God's best to you and yours,

Dr. Bill

A to Z Spiritual Gifts Bible Study and Inventory

"Spiritual Gifts"

The A to Z Spiritual Gifts Bible Study and Inventory is a complete solution to study, understand, and discover your spiritual gifts.



Take a look at these two Factoids


Factoid #1: “Our research indicates that 82 percent of all Christians with this [Interpretation] gift also have the gift of prophecy.” Source: (Schwarz, Christian. The Three Colors of Ministry. St. Charles, IL: ChurchSmart Resources, 2001, p. 129.)

Factoid #2: “Our research indicates that 13 percent of all Christians have the gift of mercy as a part of their gift mix.” Source: (Schwarz, Christian. The Three Colors of Ministry. St. Charles, IL: ChurchSmart Resources, 2001, p. 108.)

These and other Factoids can be found at ChurchGrowth Factoids
