Unleashing Hope  \\  May 26, 2014

Passage: Romans 12

Pastor Ray says Romans 12 just may be the single most important chapter in the entire Bible. It aligns perfectly with our “Unleashing Hope” Week Four topic, “Playing To Your Strengths”, about discovering and developing your spiritual gifts. Today Ray finishes his teaching from this past weekend, to lay out these 4 gift-deployment steps: dedicate, eliminate, evaluate, activate. Use these 4 important steps as you discover and develop your unique gifts, and God can use you to change the world!
