Serving in ministry at Wheeler begins with understanding our spiritual gifts. A spiritual gift is a special divine empowerment bestowed on each believer by the Holy Spirit to accomplish ministry God's way within the context of the body of Christ.

In other words, our spiritual gifts are given by God through the Holy Spirit to accomplish the work of ministry as God sees fit. Believers are called to act as stewards of these gifts and use them to glorify God and to serve others.

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (1 Peter 4:10 NIV).

We invite you to take a few moments to examine the spiritual gifts God has placed in you and better understand them by following a few key steps:

  1. Take the Spiritual Gifts Survey.
  2. Review the survey results and detailed report about your gifts.
  3. Return to the Ministries page and read the descriptions of different Ministries at Wheeler.
  4. Pray and consider where your gifts might best be used for God’s glory.

If you need assistance with understanding your survey results and how and where to serve, Congregational Development is here to help! Contact us at
