About Spiritual Formations
Virtually every believer has questions about their purpose, why they are where they are in life, and why it seems so difficult to answer the question:
“What does God want me to do with my life?”
LifeThrive’s Spiritual Formations Course helps believers know more about how they are created and equipped for personal service in God’s Kingdom.
Who can benefit from Spiritual Formations?
- Believers who have not yet found a “place” of service within a ministry.
- Members in a congregation/ministry
- New believers
Section 1: Uncovering your reason for being
In this section, you learn about God’s reasoning for creating you for “Such a time as this.” You’ll discover multiple secrets from the scripture that will uncover your uniqueness, reason, and purpose for being created.
This provides you with a general overview of the course concerning where you are in your spiritual life right now.
Without understanding our purpose from God’s perspective, we will not be able to find the joy and direction we need to Glorify Him. This session provides a path to understanding purpose.
It’s time to begin the discovery journey. You must take your two free assessments to complete this course.
Section 2: Know your personality to guide your path
You will identify the genetic traits God instilled to ensure your natural personality would groom you for both learning and success. Sanctification is not an easy process, but by understanding your unique genetic code, you can organize and direct your future path.
God had a definite plan in mind when you were created. In Jeremiah 1:5 it tells you that he “formed” you, genetically, to ensure you were unique for such a time as this.
With our uniqueness, we may find it difficult to understand others at times. We will help you understand your uniqueness and how to make that work FOR YOU.
Understanding these unique genetics will help you see why this personality is designed to “get things done and lead.”
Understanding these unique genetics will help you see why this personality is designed to “brighten, encourage, bring creativity and optimism to others.”
Understanding these unique genetics will help you see why this personality is designed to “help bring predictability and stability to the lives around them."
Understanding these unique genetics will help you see why this personality is designed to “make sure things have order, structure and follow the plans and procedures of life.”
This session will direct you to use your scores to identify your general characteristics, how you will generally want to serve in the church, and how others perceive you.
Section 3: How life set your priorities to build the Kingdom
Ever wonder why you got placed in your family, city, state, and culture? The cultural dimensions can either modify or enhance your genetics. God knew in his plan what people, circumstances, and “tweaking” you would need to help build His Kingdom. You’ll discover how your culture has inbred priorities that impact your responses perfectly for His needs!
God’s plan for you included the unique culture in which he placed you. Family, friends, education, and work provide you with unique priorities that will have a positive impact on His Kingdom. This session will help you identify how your priorities can serve your purpose in Glorifying Him.

Section 4: Maximizing your unique Spiritual Gifts, genetics, and cultural learning
You will discover how Christ assigned gifting to you that compliments your natural genetics and cultural learning. THEN He supernaturally infused you with whatever else you needed to become mature spiritually. You'll grasp how He blended all three aspects for your present and eternal role, AND it's so cool to see how this fosters your uniqueness.
This group of sessions will help you understand and apply how God combined your genetics and culture to empower you with specific gifts for service to the Body of Christ. It will also illustrate how He SUPERNATURALLY infused you with giftings outside of your personality to serve Him.
Spiritual Gifts: Clusters
Most people think that we may only have one or two giftings from God. That is NOT TRUE! God combines certain qualities from your personality and His supernatural gifting in clusters so that you may uniquely serve the Kingdom – ways that no one else can serve!
Spiritual Gifts: Displaying God’s Love
This spiritual gift cluster provides insight into how you will communicate the Spirit living in you and how it will appear to others. Your personality is often a supplement in how you care for and minister the love of God to other people.
Spiritual Gifts: Managing With God’s Principles
These spiritual gifting clusters are those that provide insight into how you would manage specific roles within the Body of Christ.
Spiritual Gifts: Displaying God’s Authority
The first of our Supernatural gifting clusters provides insight into the depth in which God has gifted you with the power to do things out of the ordinary to illustrate His work in and through you. This is all God and rarely based on your personality.
Spiritual Gifts: Communicating God’s Mind
Our last cluster of giftings illustrate how God infuses his insight and special abilities to communicate with and connect with the body in a way that will build up the body and make it stronger because of His work in and through you. If this cluster is prominent in you, know that the thoughts and words given to you for each of these gifts is infused for the unique purpose of building up others for service.
Spiritual Gifts: Conclusion
This session will direct you to use your clusters and scores to identify which of your giftings will allow you to serve in the church with your greatest supernatural strengths.
