We use the Team Ministry approach through our Adult Bible Classes and membership process to inventory the spiritual gifts of our people. This gives our ministry heads tools to place people into ministry and to connect them here at Grace. We have found this approach beneficial to not only our ministry but to every person in our church. When a person knows their spiritual gift and is placed in a ministry that uses that gift, they find joy in serving the Lord.
