Online Spiritual Gifts Assessment

For those who by God's grace have placed their faith in Christ alone for salvation, we offer an online Spiritual Gifts Assessment. This assessment can help you discover your spiritual gifts and find out how you are best gifted to serve in the body of Christ.

Upon completing this assessment, if you are logged on to your User Account on the jfaccess.johnsonferry.org site, you will be given the opportunity to save your top three spiritual gifts to your User Account. This provides us the opportunity to search for individuals with specific gifts when a particular need comes to our attention. This is completely optional, and you may still fill out this assessment just for your personal use.
