God bless,
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: “According to ‘Faith Communties Today’ (the largest survey of churches ever conducted in the United States), at the turn of the century [2000] one-half of congregations have fewer than one hundred regularly attending adults and a full quarter of congregations have fewer than fifty regularly participating adults. … According to the same survey, less than 10 percent of churches have more than one thousand people…” Source: (Aubrey Malphurs. “Leading Leaders”. Grand Rapids: Baker, 2005. P. 12.)

Factoid #2: “Randy Frazee and Lyle Schaller write that 66-75 percent of congregations founded before 1960 are plateaued or shrinking.” Source: (Malphurs, Aubrey. Leading Leaders. Grand Rapids: Baker 2005.)

Ministry Master People Tracking Software – – will help you answer key questions for your church like: "How many open positions do we have to fill in this church?" or "Who in this church has video editing abilities?" or "Which people in our church have the Gift of Intercession, who could really pray over an important issue facing us?"
