3 Clues To Know Where You Fit In Ministry Part 1

Clue Number 1: You Have Talent

You were born with at least one talent. One talent is all you need to have fulfillment in your life and ministry, if you use it.

What Is a Talent?

According to Webster's Dictionary, talent is the natural endowments of a person; or ability.

Marcus Buckingham, author of 'First Break All The Rules,' defines talent as "a recurring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied."

Talents are:
*developed through your natural ability to refine a skill and practice it until you excel.
*things and behaviors you are able to do instinctively.
*expressed through your body and taps the passion of your soul (mind, will and intellect).

When you are free to express your talents in your ministry, the goals you set for your life become more attainable and you become more productive. A talent can be something as simple as an ability to remember names if channeled in a way that is productive.

For example, one of the most important 48 hours is the time right after a person joins your ministry. Imagine having a person in your ministry who served God as the official "Connection Director." Within the first 48 hours Paula joins your ministry, your "Connection Director" contacts her. During a brief conversation your "Connection Director" learns the names of household members and their interests. When they hook up during the next service your "Connection Director" introduces Paula to Sandra by name, who has similiar interests and background.

Why is this connection so important for Paula and your "Connection Director?"
