SHAPE Online Academy
Looking to find your SHAPE? Wondering where you fit in the body of Christ and at Bethany? You have come to the right place. This online course will help you find your SHAPE for ministry. When God planned the masterpiece he would make of your life, he decided to give you certain gifts, talents, abilities and experiences that would enable you to effectively share his good news and make your own unique contribution to his kingdom. Finding your SHAPE is more than just figuring out what you are good at. Your shape consists of:
SPIRITUAL GIFTS- A set of special abilities that God has given you to share his love and serve others.
HEART- The special passions God has given you so that you can glorify Him on earth.
ABILITIES- The set of talents that God gave you when you were born, which He also wants you to use to make an impact for Him.
PERSONALITY- The special way God wired you to navigate life and fulfill your unique Kingdom Purpose.
EXPERIENCES- Those parts of your past, both positive and painful, which God intends to use in great ways.
What God made you to be, determines what he intends for you to do. Your ministry is determined by your makeup.
These lessons are intended to be done in order so don’t skip around, you can always go back and watch a lesson again. There will be a note page to print out for each lesson and some homework to do before you do the next one. Pace yourself, take your time, this is more about the process than about finishing the course quickly.
Once you have finished the course I would love to meet with you one on one and go over your final assignment with you. After our meeting I am confident that we will have a spot for you to serve in the kingdom that will not burn you out or feel like a chore. So, are you ready? Go ahead and click on the welcome video to get started. Remember, you are in my prayers as you make this journey, I can’t wait to hear about the masterpiece that God has made in you.
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus,
so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
