This season is a great time to do some reflection before the pressure of the next ministry run kicks into full gear.
There is a three step process that will serve you well.
Life Examination – Personal Review – Ministry Evaluation
The questions below can be applied to the above three categories. These three steps will help you process what you should be doing. Of course it is never as clear as it may appear in writing, but, the process does work itself out if you are committed to discovering your unique contribution.
Pastor coach Gary Reinecke provides this list of 9 questions to help you refine your Unique ministry shape. This will empower you to be a more faithfully steward the gifts and ministry that has been entrusted to you.

3 What spiritual gifts fuel these skills & abilities?
Feedback from others:
