3 Color Tests
Below are three Tests you can complete online. The Gift Test and the Community Test can both be completed online or on paper from the respective book. The Empowerment Test can be completed only online because it involved 360 feedback from at least two of your friends, colleagues or other people you empower and/or lead.
Group reports: groups can obtain consolidated reports from the Gift Test or and Empowerment Tests. Contact NCD Canada if your group could benefit from seeing a macro view of its strengths and weaknesses – ideal for leadership retreats and forward planning!
The Gift Test will help you understand the gifts God has given to you by His grace, and for the good of the Body. In fact, one could argue that the gifts have been give to the Body, not specifically to you! You will complete a detailed gift-profile and learn about using your gifts.
Groups and whole congregations often use the 3 Color Gift Test to assess the group’s direction, as a discernment tool prior to programming decisions.
The Communal Test will help you understand the God-given energies you have, and how they can best be used for the growing of community. It will also bring insight into how these energies are the same ones that sometimes give you drive, and sometimes almost seem to overpower you.
For example, if your primary energy is for Power, your best contribution to the building up of community is to em-power others. The flip side is that if you use this energy for your own gain rather than for the community’s, you are highly vulnerable to the sin of Pride.
In addition to the immediate feedback, You will receive practical steps that will allow you to release spiritual power.
