Abstract
In response to the vocation of all Christians to share in Christ's ministry, the "Living Our Strengths for Ministry" project utilizes a workshop with participant action research methods to help participants identify and integrate their gifts for ministry. The workshop incorporates collaborative learning through a mini-lecture, individual reflection, small group discussion, role play, and focus group discussion. Participants explore their results from Gallup's StrengthsFinder assessment from a Christian perspective. Measurement tools include StrengthsFinder results, repeated Likert-style questionnaires, and semi-structured interviews. The research shows that a strengths-based workshop positively influences participants' ability to identify and integrate their gifts for ministry.
