Read: Ephesians 4:11-13. These are a list of ministry gifts. What roles are represented? Who has those gifts in your church? Do you believe that you might have one or more of these gifts? Why do you believe so? If you are not sure, ask God to show you which gift you might use for His Kingdom work.
APOSTLE: A person sent to new places with the gospel. You may have heard of missionaries going to different countries to help spread the Word; they could be described as apostles. An apostle can also provide leadership to other churches or ministries and offer advice on spiritual matters.
PROPHET: The ability to speak the message of God to others. This sometimes involves foresight or visions of what is to come. This skill should be used only to offer encouragement or warning.
TEACHER: The skill to teach from the Bible and communicate it effectively for the understanding and spiritual growth of others.
EVANGELIST: The ability to successfully communicate the message of the gospel, especially to nonbelievers.
PASTOR: A person chosen to spiritually shepherd and protect a congregation.
