Serving Sweet Spot™ Profile
Bringing Your Strengths & Service to Life
"God has given each of us the ability to do certain things well." Romans 12:6 (NLT)
I'm so glad you are here. It means that you want to become all God created you to be. Chances are you have either read my book S.H.A.P.E. or studied the material in your church. Either way...Congrats!
Now it’s time to further clarify Your Serving Sweet Spot™ by completing the online strengths assessment. If you read the books, use this time to compare your results with what your wrote in pages 176-183 in your book.
As you may recall from your reading, in the world of sports, the "sweet spot" is that place on a baseball bat, tennis racquet, or golf club that when hit properly the swing becomes very effective with little effort. Learning to hit the sweet spot is one reason athletes like Barry Bonds, Andre Agassi, and Tiger Woods swing so effortlessly, yet with such force.
God designed you with a Sweet Spot too. It's the area in which your S.H.A.P.E. is best expressed, typically recognized in those moments when others comment on your special ability to do something. When you operate in this area, you, like Bonds, Agassi, and Woods, are very effective and efficient. More important, when you are serving others within your Sweet Spot, you feel little or no negative force in your life because you are being true to who God made you to be.
The Serving Sweet Spot™ Assessment is designed to help you further understand how you are uniquely created by God, which will help you determine the most fulfilling environment to fulfill your Kingdom Dream and Kingdom Purpose. You will be asked a series of questions that should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Please read and follow the instruction at the start of each new section. When you are finished, you will be provided with a personalize Serving Sweet Spot™ Profile, which will clearly identify:
- Your Serving Strengths: The spiritual gifts and natural abilities that God has given you to serve others!
- Your Serving Group: The people you love serving and impacting for God’s glory!
- Your Serving Desires: The needs you love meeting in another persons life!
- Your Serving Setting: The ideal place that maximizes your personality so you can make the greatest impact for God!
When you are able to serve in a setting that best expresses your strengths and allows you to meet the needs of the people you are most passionate about, you are in your sweet spot.
Once you are done, you will be able to see your profile and send copies to family and friends so they can help you reach your full potential. You may also want to send a copy to your pastor, Sunday school leader or small group leader.
GO WITH YOUR GUT...Many people have completed this assessment and have found it very helpful. However, to get the MOST accurate score go with your gut feeling when you answer the questions. In addition, give yourself permission to indicate who you truly are. Don't worry about what others may think...that is never the goal of serving God. God designed you to just be you!
So grab your book (so you have the access code) and lets start the survey. If you'd like to leave the survey at any time, your answers will be saved and you will be able to return where you left off so that you may finish at a later time. If you received a code from your church then you will want to use that to complete the assessment.
