What are your gifts?

If you are unaware of your spiritual gifts, heart passions or personality traits, we offer a confidential spiritual gifts assessment free of charge complements of Houston's First! While completion of this assessment is not required to volunteer, it can better assist you in determining where to serve with your spiritual gifts.
