Spiritual Gifts Assessment

Instructions

  1. Begin with prayer, asking God to give you wisdom to be as accurate as possible.
  2. Begin by reading the statement, then determine your agreement with the statement.
    If the statement perfectly describes you, click once in the circle on the Strong side, if it doesn’t, click on the Weak side. Most answers fall between these extremes as no one perfectly expresses any gift and no one is devoid of any gift.
  3. Keep an open mind, even if you react negatively. When you disagree with a statement, try to determine how much of the statement you can affirm.
    • Sample: I pray for unsaved people by name. If you pray occasionally click in the middle area.
    • Sample: I look forward to speaking in public. If this terrifies you click under weak.
  4. Try to complete the entire questionnaire in one sitting. Read each statement and answer as quickly as possible. Your first response is usually a truthful response.
** This online version of Towns’ Spiritual Gift Questionnaire will take approximately 10 – 30 minutes.
