There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same God.
1 Corinthians 12:4-5
We do ministry whenever and wherever we say “Yes!” to God and use our God-given gifts to follow Christ and do God’s work in the world.
Discovering our gifts and how God calls each of us to ministry is an on-going process that reveals more and more fully who God has created each of us to be.
We are unique human beings, so the process will be different for each of us. Ultimately the goal is to nurture within each of us an increasingly clear sense of God’s call: of the particular work God is calling each of us to do in the world at this time. Along the way, we also grow in our relationship with God.
