Everyone has been given gifts to grow and bless the church, and as Christ calls each of us to serve one another we want to help you discover your gifts and use them to be involved in community.

We encourage you to take the FIT spiritual gifts assessment at http://www.opiso.org/spiritual-gifts/ to discover where you may be a good fit.
