What is P.L.A.C.E.?
P.L.A.C.E. is an intentional way of “doing church,” where people are connected with ministry opportunities that match the way God providentially designed them. To make these matches or to start new ministries, PLACE equips people to recognize their God-given personality, spiritual gifts, abilities, passions, and life experiences.
Personality and Spiritual Gifts tell an individual HOW to serve while passion and life experiences guide an individual in WHERE he/she desires to serve. Once an individual understands these key words emphasize that abilities determines the environment in which they will be fulfilled and competent in serving. An individual may be in the right ministry (CE of PLACE), doing the right tasks (PL of PLACE), but in the wrong environment and not desire that area to serve within church.
It is our goal that every member complete this process and become equipped with the awareness of their P.L.A.C.E. profile allowing them to make decisions on how and where to give their time to ministry within the local church.
Place In Church
Today more than any other time in history, people have more choices as to how to give their time. They find themselves asking, “Where do I fit in?” “Why am I here?” and “What can I do to make a lasting difference in my life and the lives of others?”
God created each of us for a purpose. “For we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10. Part of his purpose for us is to edify the church and to serve in its ministries. “…to prepare God’s people for the works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up.” Ephesians 4:12. The PLACE process can help you discover how God has uniquely designed you, and it will help you realize His purpose for your life. You find your life as you give it away…but first you have to know what you have to give!
