What Type of Spiritual Gifts Do You Have?


These gifts are used to lead others: administration, leadership and pastoring/shepherding. 

We have grouped the specific gifts into categories to highlight the kinds of tasks God gives them for, not to restrict them to certain settings. God may use His gifts more broadly than we describe here.

The gift of administration is the God-given ability to give direction and make decisions on behalf of others that result in efficiency and the accomplishment of goals. Administration includes the ability to organize people, things, information, finances and so on. (1 Corinthians 12:28) 

The spiritual gift of leadership is found in people who have a clear, significant vision from God and can communicate it publicly or privately in such a way that they inspire others to pursue that vision. (Romans 12:8)

The person with a pastoring/shepherding gift has a love for people that compels him or her to meet with people, to care for them and to guide them with biblical instruction. People with this gift find great joy in seeing people mature in their faith and overcome habitual sin and discouragement. (Ephesians 4:11)
