Unlock Spiritual Gifts

Help your group members discover and use their spiritual gifts.

Whether your theology includes 16, 23, or even more spiritual gifts, your group is missing out if you're not talking about them. This Training Tool will show you how to help your group members discover and embrace their spiritual gifts. The first two articles will give you a great foundation for talking about gifts—whatever your theology. The rest of the resource includes articles that help identify spiritual gifts, give creative ideas for using your gifts, and share how you can model using your gifts appropriately.

For a sample from this Training Tool, read "Call Out the Spiritual Gifts in Your Group Members."
