At The Ransom Church, Serving Free of Self is one of our three core values. We believe that finding your specific role to serve in God’s body is vital in our role as Christ followers. For that reason, we don’t try to ‘fill positions’ of need. We try to help you discover who God created you to be and unleash your skills in the areas that you are gifted in.
In order to know where you fit, you need to know your SHAPE. SHAPE stands for Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experience. We have designed 15-20 minute assessment to help you address those key areas. When you’re done, our team will be in contact with you to talk about your SHAPE and finding your ministry fit here at The Ransom. Click here to find your SHAPE!
Already know your SHAPE?
We have a handy way for you to let us know where you’re interested in plugging in. Simply follow the link below and check the boxes for the ministries that you are interested in serving with, and a leader from that department will be in contact with you.
