SPIRITUAL GIFTS SURVEY
This is not a test, so there are no wrong answers. The Spiritual Gifts Survey consists of 80
statements. Some items reflect concrete actions; other items are descriptive traits; and still
others are statements of belief.
• Select the one response you feel best characterizes yourself and place that number in
the blank provided. Record your answer in the blank beside each item.
• Do not spend too much time on any one item. Remember, it is not a test. Usually your
immediate response is best.
• Please give an answer for each item. Do not skip any items.
• Do not ask others how they are answering or how they think you should answer.
• Work at your own pace.
