About 23 years ago, a pastor called Rick Warren invented a simple little acrostic, to help the folks in his church find out how they could best serve God.
That acrostic was the word SHAPE.
Each letter stood for a different aspect of a person’s unique design. Today, that little word is helping thousands of people in churches around the world to find fulfilment, as they undergo SHAPE style courses and discover their God-given destiny.
Erik Rees is the pastor of the SHAPE Discovery program at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church. He’s written a book about the concept and he joined Sheridan Voysey last Sunday night.
Erik Rees explains the SHAPE concept:
S – SPIRITUAL GIFTS
H – HEART
A – ABILITIES
P – PERSONALITY
E – EXPERIENCES
