What is No More Spectators?
No More Spectators is about leveraging all that God has created you for—in the church and in the community. There are so many good works that God has designed for his church to do, and some of them he has made specifically for you. Through No More Spectators, we have the goal of seeing peoples’ gifts activated and seeing an equal number of people serving both in the church and in the community.
1. Discover Your Gifts
When we use the word “gifted” in our culture, we often think about a talent or a unique set of skills that a person possesses to accomplish a task. Giftings look diﬀerently for each and every one of us, and they play themselves out diﬀerently in each of our lives. Giftings can be spiritual, as in given by the Holy Spirit to all believers, but God has also given each of us talents and abilities that can be used for his kingdom purposes. If you don’t already know what your giftings are, the ﬁrst step to discovering your gifts is to take the gifts assessment. You will then take your top three gifts (highest numbers) and match them with your passions by creating an account. Get started by going to the link below.
2. Find Your Passion
When trying to discover what you’re passionate about, it is often helpful to ask yourself the question, “What stirs my heart?” Passions can be geared towards a certain group of people or a felt need in the church, the surrounding community, or the world at large.
At Mercy Hill, we want you to serve in an area (or areas) that you are passionate about. You can do this through two avenues: serving at Mercy Hill and serving in the community.
