Yet, learning about how God has uniquely equipped and gifted each of us is a step towards understanding our calling as God’s children and how we are called as kingdom workers on earth. In two short videos, Rev. Molly Moore offers a short teaching on the SHAPE method for discerning your spiritual gifts and the GRASP model for discovering your God-given purpose.
