My Serving Profile 

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:4–5 

The Bible tells us we have all been created in God's image, yet we are all very different from one another! To help you better understand your talents and giftings, we invite you to complete a Serving Profile

Please connect with your Ministry Leader or Team Leader before starting.
