Kristin Haigler On Her Spiritual Gifts and Their Role in her Ministry
My Spiritual Gifts are: Compassion, Servanthood, and Shepherding.
I grew up singing. Mostly in church, but also at school and in other choirs. When I took my spiritual gifts survey, I fully expected to see something related to music as a spiritual gift. So imagine my surprise when the words "compassion", "servanthood", and "shepherding" popped up! Shepherding was my strongest gift, and I had to ask Pastor Jan what that even meant!
I took that survey about 2 years ago. I am now completing my first year as the director of Williamson's Chapel Preschool. As I reflect on this year, I see many ways in which my spiritual gifts have guided me and helped me become a better leader. I have learned to work with a staff of wonderful teachers who love the children in their classes, and work hard every day to help those children grow and learn about the love the Christ. By using my gift of shepherding I've been able to implement new ideas with the support and excitement of our staff. They've welcomed and accepted me as their new leader, and together we are working to maintain and improve upon the amazing weekday preschool program at WCUMC.
I am grateful for the opportunity to have taken the GPS survey at WCUMC. Without it I would never have realized that the ability to work with a group of people and lead them all toward a common goal (the definition of shepherding) was actually a spiritual gift that I could use in many aspects of my life.
