Spiritual Gifts Inventory

The Spiritual Gifts Inventory has 115 questions and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Select only one answer. Don’t be modest. Answer spontaneously and honestly.

After completing the inventory, a report with your score in each category will be emailed to you. This report has a link to a document with the description of each gift and how those gifts might be used at St. Timothy in one of our parish ministries or activities.
