Discover & Use Your Spiritual Gifts!

God has given you specific spiritual gifts and abilities to help people in our church, communities and world. Many people find it helpful to use a spiritual gifts discovery tool to affirm how God has gifted and shaped them to help others. With this in mind, we encourage you to take advantage of our new online Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment for valuable insights about your God-given talents. 

STEP 1: COMPLETE the Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment

This online tool takes about 10 minutes to complete. Once submitted, a copy of your results will be emailed to you and confidentially to Pastor Jim Peich. If you do not have access to a computer or tablet, please stop by the Faith Formation Kiosk in the church narthex after any worship service. You’ll be able to complete the assessment online or use a paper copy.


Note:  A few of the assessment questions may include verbiage that is different than you typically experience at Manchester UMC. Answer each question to the best of your ability with the assurance that there is no right or wrong answer. If you prefer to take a Spiritual Gifts Assessment without a copy of your results going confidentially to Pastor Jim Peich, we recommend using the United Methodist Spiritual Gifts Assessment instead.

STEP 2: REVIEW Your Results

As you review your results, remember that they are designed to help you explore how God has shaped you to help others. They offer guidance and are not meant to be absolute. We encourage you to PRINT YOUR RESULTS to prompt prayer, reflection and conversation as you consider how you can best fulfill God’s plans and purposes for your life using the spiritual gifts you have received. 

STEP 3: PLUG INTO a Ministry Team

There are two primary ways you can use your results to plug into a ministry team at Manchester UMC:

  • ATTEND AN UPCOMING MINISTRY FAIR - Bring your results to one of our three upcoming ministry fairs and we’ll help you get plugged into a ministry team that makes sense for you. All ministry fairs will be located in the church Narthex and Fellowship Hall. 

Missions Fair – Join us on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018 after each worship service to learn more about opportunities to serve people outside of our church. Manchester UMC offers many ways to serve others in our communities, nation and world. You’ll be amazed at the many ways you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

  • LET US HELP YOU - If you’d like to have a conversation about your spiritual gifts and abilities and where you might use them to help others, one of our pastors would be delighted to meet and talk with you. Please contact Tiffany Conway at to schedule a time to meet with a pastor.

For more information or assistance with the Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment, please contact Pastor Jim Peich.
