Find Your "S.H.A.P.E"!

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 Ryan Zimmerman, Rafael Nadal, 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 Zimmerman, Nadal, 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 S.H.A.P.E 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. There are four unique assessment tools that will help you discover God's best ministry for you. 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 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, ministry leader or small group leader.
