An example of Strategic Value Two: Permeate! Engaging every individual, church, and agency in the Great Commandments (Matt. 22:37-39)--see the video of the Church of God response to the January 12, 2010 Haiti earthquake!

Randy - We are reformatting statewide ministries in Oklahoma to incorporate Pastoral and Congregational Health. I definitely see this being a part of Cultivate/Refresh across the CHOG. SHAPE is a part of this process as are a couple other areas. We welcome input that is working across the nation.

New team members of the "Cultivate/Refresh" team. I would like to announce and welcome Pastor Melissa Pratt and Dr. Sam Bruce to the "Cultivate/Refresh" team. Our team has been revamping and I have new commitments from team members Steve Birch, Jim Johnman, and Barb Ferraro, Gary Moore. These team members join Joe Allison and myself.

I researched this a couple of years ago to find a nice spiritual gifts inventory that could be accessible on our church web site. I found one by Greg Wiens, EdD that I found unique and interesting - you can find it here:
... as well as replicated on South Meridian's site under "Resources" after you're logged in. I didn't quickly see where Dr. Wiens has linked the definition details associated with his inventory from his web site, but they are still on South's site here:
However, you'll need to register for an account on South's site and log in before you can view them.

What resources do you recommend to young Christians who want to take a spiritual gifts inventory? (Prefer online, really prefer FREE!)
