2. Natural Talents
Everyone has natural talents.

Understanding how your natural talents equip you for ministry takes careful, prayerful brain-storming. To aid in the process, realize that sometimes natural talents overlap with spiritual gifts. Other times, God chooses to keep them separate.
3. Learned Skills
Colossians 3:23-24. Whatever we do, we should consider it an opportunity to be in ministry for God. This not only includes the actual tasks we are to do in our work, but also the opportunities for outreach within these vocational situations.
4. Life Experiences
Romans 8:28. No matter how painful our life experiences may have been, God has allowed them to happen in your life. He can and will use them to uniquely shape you for a specific ministry within the Body of Christ.
